I don't think so I carry most of that in a boat thats just under 4m long. I also usually have a multimeter on the boat which I don't think anyone mentioned.

I just tow RIBnet's very own Biffer behind mine - it solves all known problems, adds a large dose of humour and tells you to f$$king get a grip when your electrics fail - perfect solution and takes up less room than a tool kit
