Police your own yard. Try and be positive with your comments. Encourage people to share instead of going after them Keep the negativity and criticisms to yourself

I am not policing anything. Chill out. You set forth a laundry list of spares and nary a tool. The OP asked for tools you didn't provide any tools IIRC. I think you missed the point of what the OP was after.

Spares are very important.. and that is a topic for another thread.

One could argue whether tape or 5200 is a tool or not. I think of tools as mechanical devices that do work or a task:

Or

anything used as a means of accomplishing a task or purpose:
Education is a tool for success.

Or

The most common use is to describe someone (usually a guy) who is too stupid to know he's being used (he is literally a tool for someone else). Probably the second most common use is for someone who's just an idiot or screw-up.

There are quite a few definitions I think. I understood what the OP was looking for and expanded a little

Re: What tools

My two favorite tools right now are Sears Handi-cut tool, nothing better for cutting line, and a spare antenna (screw base ) about 4' long with a little ball on the end. It has proved invaluable for fishing wires around the Boat its only long enough to reach through the tight spots. I have so many dedicated Boat tools I keep the heavy seldom used in the dock box.

Don't pass a fishtape to the main panel, it will be live. Should have pointed that out first.

Re: What tools

Gentlemen,
"However I've not worked on sailboats and found myself wondering what could go wrong and what do I need to fix it." Dudes! Can't believe you guys didn't catch that! What could go wrong? Anything and everything! Never ceases to amaze me what can go wrong. Used to annoy me, now I'm like, Hey, another challenge. Happened just today, again. Ditto on the better tools. LOL! Kevin
