I have to second this Dewalt, the things perfect for the boat (and the dog hair on it). It's not intended to run for 20 minutes straight, just small jobs. While pretty loud, it has great suction. When we bought ours, it came with 2 batteries - which is where the real expense is.

That vacuum looks great for the purpose, but I cringe a little to see people talking about DeWalt's great reputation. DeWalt is a subsidiary of Stanley/Black and Decker, and while for a number of years their commercial line of tools was very high quality they have always had a lower-end retail line that traded on that reputation without actually living up to it. Since 2004 when the conglomerate acquired Porter-Cable (which itself had already acquired Delta) I think the quality of the DeWalt brand has really gone downhill.
