cnc33voodoo is on a distinguished road
my boat is a floating hardware store as i know the feeling of getting stuck in a storm and make sure im always prepared for anything.
theres nothing like having the right tool for the job if you get in a jam.i built a compartment in my quarter berth dedicated to safely storing tools for whatever pops up.
plus
-electric trolling motor.
-booster pack
-winch spare parts
-impellar
-fuel line,seacock tubing,clamps
-t-stat
-engine oil
-lock tite
-spark plugs,wires,coil,points,condensor,fuel filter/water seperator
-sealants,rigging/electrical,butle tape
-fuel
-doubles of all safety gear
-headgasket rebuild kit
-ropes,blocks,cleats,roll of cable with clamping tool and fittings,bungees
-electrical-tape,wiring,butt connectors,butane soldering kit(doubles as a torch),bulbs,fuses,dvom.
-snorkel/goggles (which i pray i never use)
-back up tiller
-2 50000 candle light power flashlights
-hardware toolbox-nuts/bolts/washers/turnbuckles,cotter pins,dowel pins
-cable cutters
-assortment of shore power converters
-most importantly a spare bottle of jack daniels for liquid confidence just in case all else fails
sd-its funny that you mentioned shear pins as 2 years ago on my 24 footer a spare would have saved me a tow-back.
