Jrthomus, What I do is this. If I bring a tool from home that I need to fix something on the boat, I leave it on the boat and get another for the work shop. That way I have most everything on the boat I need and new tools at home. Of course, you will need basics, sockets, wrenches, blah, blah, blah. I go to the flea market and get some good cheap tools there. A couple of monkey wrenches are nice for the stuffing box. I'm looking for a hand drill now. I'll bet I could find a use for that someday soon. My two cents, Kevin

5200 is definitely not a tool. It is a consumable.

Tools, you pass on for generations. 5200...not so much, one hopes.(G)

Learn what you need...for every fastener/job on the boat.

You may be surprised at how few tools you actually need for reg maintenance.

It's learned by individual owner over time.

This is another golden nugget I will take to heart as my experience deepens. TKS

The one tool that I always want on a boat and it will help you out and save you more than you will ever think is a ................wire coat hanger! Stop laughing and just put one on board.
