Some of the lads use Sea Spanners - mainly stainless shifters. But in my line of work I tend to work with throw away tools as in the long run then tend to get lost or broken before they're to badly corroded.

Bigger stuff like compressors and hydraulic power packs, boat trailer wheels and brake drums, etc etc gets a good dose of Glaskelder or equivalent when brand new. This makes it look tatty and crap but seems to do a great job in preservation against salt spray and corrosion. Hydraulic fittings and stuff that needs disassembly for maintenance often gets wrapped in denso tape

Not the Glaskelder stuff, but I use this both professionally & for the boaty stuff. Very very good stuff, not pretty when it's on, but does what it says on the tin. Around 4quid a can & they have a distributor in the ROI.
