I second the impact driver approach, they work great, and usually won't spin the bolt if the nut is snugged up by hand. I carry one on the boat all the time. I hate using vice grips on threads, although it's necessary at times, and it's impossible to get two hands into a lot of the areas where deck hardware comes through.
