It’s always best to be prepared when traveling on your boat. Carrying a first aid kit is a must, but carrying a tool kit with you is also a good decision. You never know when you might need to repair a canvas or tighten a bolt. First, make sure you have a waterproof marine tool box to keep your tools organized and handy, but also to protect your tools from water damage.
Now, what’s in your tool kit? Here are a few basic tools you should keep in your tool kit onboard at all times.
Canvas Snap Tool: Easily align and fasten inside and outside snaps. Ideal for unsnapping snaps without damaging the canvas. (pictured below)
Duct Tape: Because everyone knows that Duct Tape can fix anything! Electrical tape is another good thing to keep handy.
Manuals: Chances are, if you need your tool kit, you’ll also need your manual – whether for your engine, plumbing, ventilation, or just your boat in general. You should keep these manuals in your tool box with your tools so that you don’t have to search for them when you truly need them. Make sure you keep these in a large plastic zip lock bag so that they don’t get wet.
Wrenches: Make sure you have several different sizes with you if you aren’t quite sure of the exact sizes that you’ll need.
Screwdrivers: Pick up one of those handy dandy 11-in-1 screwdriver sets at your local hardware store – you’ll thank yourself later.
Canvas Repair Kit: This kit should include small pieces of canvas, needles and string.
Super glue: Because just like Duct Tape, it can fix anything when you’re in a pickle.
Multi-tool: Having a small multi-functional tool on board, such as Swiss army knife, can definitely come in handy. Many of these tools include small screw drivers, scissors, knives of all sizes, etc.
Socket set: If you have the room for a complete set, perfect. If not, find out the sizes you need and keep them on board at all times.
Spare Flashlight: with fresh batteries. Make sure your flashlight is waterproof and floats in case of an emergency.
There are several other things to consider keeping on board in your tool kit (depending on the size of your boat and add-on equipment) such as extra fuses, impellers, spare keys, wire cutters, spare electrical wiring, etc.
Make sure you keep your tool kit in a place where you can easily access it, especially in a time of emergency. If you have to use something in your tool kit (such as a spare part) or if something in your tool kit breaks, be sure to replace it as soon as you get back to dock. Remember, keep calm and carry a tool kit. Happy boating!
