I have a deep, top access locker under one side of the v-berth aft of the sail locker I use for tools.

I have a Craftsman set in a hard case that has combo wrenches, nut drivers, 1/4" & 1/2" sockets, and screwdrivers; I keep two silica packs in the case. 3/4" socket set has it's own hard case with one more silica pack. A Duluth tool bag has hammers, chisels, and small pry bars on one side and weird bits like a Clamptite tool and splicing wands on the other; two more silica packs. I have a bunch of canvas bags, each with a silica pack, for electrical, rigging, plumbing, glass work, and things that don't categorize well.

Parts and spares go in Lock-n-Locks in an adjacent locker. Long term spares are vacuum sealed before going in the box. Everything is labeled.
sail fast and eat well, dave
