I usually have two on me... one in a pocket of my foul weather gear or on my harness, and the other in my back pocket. Both are Boye Rigging knives, and made of cobalt carbide. They're folding lockback knives, that can be opened with one hand very easily.
They're pretty solid for folding knives, and one is serrated with no point, and the other is a non-serrated with a point. They hold an edge pretty well, but are a PITA to sharpen... and cut line really well.
I also usually carry a Leatherman ChargeTi pocket tool with me. Very nice, with titanium handles, so it's a bit lighter than the stainless steel version. Knife blades on it are just okay... don't hold an edge as well as the Boyes, but easier to sharpen.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
