I went to home depot and purchased a few small fabric tool bags. Then sprayed them (outdoors) with stuff meant to waterproof tents. Spray the seams especially well. On them with permanent marker I put what is in each, electrical, plumbing, pliers, dremel, screwdrivers, spare parts, etc.
Had this arrangement for 3 years and very happy with it. I only need one maybe two for any job and the rest stay secure below. I also use the shoulder strap to attach bag to boat if working on deck.
I have 9 bags, and my toolkit is extensive, I even have a vice. But how much you need depends on how far from help will you be, and how dependent do you want to be.
