I liked "sailingdog's" list of tools, but I'd have three wierd additions. There's nothing that replaces the function of a turkey baster for moving some fluids in or out of some tight places. I also have a three foot piece of fishing rod with a large alligator clip clamped to the end. With toweling clipped at the end I can clean and swab otherwise inaccesable places. A third wierd, but useful tool is a surfboard leash. This soft plastic tube can be used as a plumbers snake to clean out heat echange tubing without worry of damage. It's especially useful with marine air conditioners. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
