I carry a similar amount of gubbins on my wee 3.9m boat. Its not as well organised as that though - and I can confirm that whenever you need a set of pliers or adjustable spanner it will have rusted solid in storage.

Whats in the blue/turquoise cup/jar?

Whatever your choice if tools just make sure they are up to the job , also try undoing or loosening & retightening back with the actual tools that you are going to use every now & again Its no good having a tool kit onboard with the intention of itll be ok then find out the bolts too tight to come undone or the sockets worn , Pair of long nose pliers are handy too for those fiddly or hard to access hose clips or electrical connecters .

The box was courtesy of B & Q and I added the bungies - you can see how neat it fits in the bow.

Agreed, but a sheltered beach can also be useful.


Other thing I can almost guarantee - no matter how many failure scenarios you think you have planned for Mr Sod will come along and provide you with the one you don't have a tool /spare for!


Cruising in company is also another sociable safety feature of mosy boats!
