Re: power tool voltage for cruising: 12V or 18.5V or 110V AC?
I keep this Dewalt cordless screwdriver aboard. It is very versatile, with any flat/phillips/allen/torx/etc driver bits and drill bits. It will work in a straight pisition like a screwdriver or bent like a drill. Any quick connect kit works. It just lies flat in my tool bag like any other tool in there. I use it very often.

I also keep a cordless wet/dry shop vac, which will run on an 18v batt or can be plugged in. Incredibly helpful for everything from crumbs to getting that last bit of water out of a bilge. Small enough that it fits under a settee seat.

For more serious drilling I keep a plain old 110v power drill. I also have a Dremel.
