Thanks for the responses
I have a folding knife on a lanyard with a carabiner to the D-ring on the lifejacket harness - I was thinking of a backup - the Race Rescue Knife with a hook end

on the transom specifically to deal with ropes and netting round the prop.
Looks like I'll have to make an off-boat scabbard out of the inside of a bog roll.
Ta again for the advice for a newbie

I have one in each pocket, a couple tucked under the pillow, two in the glove box, a dozen or so hidden around the engine bay, three in the anchor locker, seven gaffered to the back of each seat, one tie-wrapped to the stern drive tie bar, and just for good measure, and in case I have trouble putting my hands on one, I usually keep a spare in my top shirt pocket (next to the RayBan's)

Do you think I should have more?

Probably Jon, but this threads about knives, not tins of polish..
