I keep a set similar to this one on my boat along with a crescent wrench, spare serpentine belt and spare impeller.

I think the best Tool Kits are "Built not Bought" those kits like in the link seem to have everything that you DONT NEED! and it has 2 of them both in Metric and American LOL

My Advice is build a kit based off the the tools that you actually use. Example you Might not need Every socket like in that kit. If space is a issue I would get one of the Carry bag tool bags. Then load it with a large and small set of standard screwdrivers. A cresent wrench a small set of sockets. Wire cutters test light, electrical tape, a Large adjustable wrench. Vice grips large and needle nose. A good razor knife. Jumper cables. zip ties. I have found that the Stanley open end wrench set with the ratchet ends are the tools I seem to use the most..

That should get you started. Just remember the tools that you use or think you might need and start collecting B4 you know it you will have everything.

I agree with G. Built not bought is the way to go! Also, I carry spare belts for everything, impeller, fuses, and anything else I can get "back ups" of!

What brand boat depends on what size kit you need to carry.
