I'm looking for a vacuum for living aboard, so this looks great. I also want something that can suck air out of a space bag, thus making clothing storage a breeze. Has anyone used a Shop Vac for space bags? I'm assuming it'll work fine.

Works great to get that last bit of water from the bilges.

Ditto here. Love this tool. Much more suction than expected. Even has a blower, which I just used last weekend to inflate the swim rafts for the kids.

I'm using this at the moment: Shark Pet Perfect Hand Vacuum, SV75Z: Appliances

The battery life and portability are great, but it doesn't get into the corners and hard to reach places very well. The small 1-2 gallon wet/dry vacs listed here look awesome.

We use the small Ryobi, with 18v battery. Works fine, we have a cat and live aboard. Also use the Ryobi 18v drill and saw. Ryobi offers a car charger for the 18v bats, that makes us pretty much off the grid . . .
