Electrical connectors, a variety of plus electrical tape, wire cutters and crimpers.

Ive been doing lots of work recently on my boat awaiting my new A frame to be made and as such have gone through all the wirring on my boat and checked connectors and condition and have found a few connections including a couple which went to one of the battery switches to be in very poor condition, hence would have failed at some point. So its a good idea to take some electrical wire and a few connectors.

[QUOTE=m chappelow;606538]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


Good grief my nuts are getting tighter at the thought!!

Classic example is the recoil pull start rope snapping , "no problem just remove the 3 bolts holding the recoil unit & wrap the starter rope around the emergency flywheel pulley to start " that is if the bolts will come undone ; )

I dont carry much in the way of spanners, etc - but I always carry a spare can of fuel (obvious) - and a spare fuel line and primer bulb.

Hi guys!

My sacs tomahawk s590 ( not so common brand? ) has quite nice storage space and I have there:

spark plugs+wrench
water separator/fuel filter
20ltrs gasoline
anchor and rope 40mtrs + 30mtrs
paddle, fire-extinquisher
screw drivers, hex-drivers
wrench-set, adjustable wrench
crimpers + connectors, other pliers
knife
cable-ties
prop nut set, extra sockets for prop nut
good torch/flashlight
duck-tape, electrical tape
first aid-kit
clamp-seal, electrical pump
immersion suits and life-jackets
and also SPARE PROP. Unfortunately in Finland there is some scrap on the sea at spring time: pieces of wood, empty bottles etc. because when ice is melting away it brings scrap from islands. Also my spare prop is with 2" less pitch if there is a need to take more load on the boat. Ok itīs not fun to change prop on the sea but if you have to you can!

We use my RIB mainly to go to summer house at off-shore island 24km from main land. When going there or coming back with not best weather conditions you want to have spares/tools/spare prop with you...
