Wanted to put together a tool kit to keep in my boat all the time. If I dont then I know the time I need I will forget it. Any suggestions on some basic tools to keep in the boat other than my wallet, cash, and credit card!!! Thans for your suggestions.

small C-wrench, large C-wrench, screwdrivers, hex wrenches, needlenose, flashlight, and a socket set. I carry a lot more but I also spend a lot of time on the road (about 10,000 miles last year).

prop puller, spare prop, some rags, a knife, fuses, zip ties, and a dive mask.

I've changed the prop in an i/o on the water before. I have no idea if it is feasible with an inboard. But I'd try if I was stranded at lake powell or the like.

All the above stuff, plus Krazy Glue and pruning shears--both for first aid.

The Krazy Glue works well to close up gashes that would typically require a stitch.

Pruning shears will cut through binding foam should someone take a bad fall and need to have a foot extracted.

Keep some extra binding screws handy.

I bought a "brief case" tool kit like BR said. I got mine at WestMarine. It has a big rubber gasket around it to seal it from water getting in.

Pelican cases are the best for boats. They are air tight and water tight. I have had my full tool kit for 5 years, gets wet almost every time out, not a spec of rust. Also got one one jumper cables and digital cameras. Crush proof too!

There are some great suggestions on this thread. Here are a couple that haven't been mentioned: 1. Make sure you have a lug wrench and jack that fits your trailer (may be different than your truck). 2. glow-sticks (military or night club depending on your background) are small, maintenance free, work underwater, and are great in emergencies; you can also hang one from your tower to light the inside of your boat at night without using battery power (not a replacement for nav/anchor lights of course).
