I have already devoted a small space for all of the tools, that I intend on having on board my boat.

You never know what tool you'll ever need. When it comes to fixing things on board a boat?

I almost always know (ahead of time) which tool I’ll need aboard - it’s the one I don’t have /w me.

Well Gord.

That's what I meant in the post before you posted that comment. I plan to have all the tools needed. Which is why I already have a small space set aside for the tools ahead of time before I move aboard. And start my renovation project.

And sort of like you said, "You never know which tool you'll need. So bring them all!!"

Kevin:
If you ”...plan to have all the tools needed ...”
then
”... a small space set aside for the tools ...”
won’t be large enough.
And, according to Murphy’s Law, the missing tool will be the one you need.
Thus, I don’t carry a chain saw file.

As Kai pointed out, I have a really great area in my aft passageway for tools AND spare parts - in fact, I think it is safe to say that most things stowed aboard fall into those two catagories. One never has enough: tools or spare parts ... unless you have three boats and two houses plus a spare 'dub' bus to stash things in.

LMAO

Yeah Thomas. You're right about having to have a space for tools and spare parts.

Unfornately, for right now. I only worked out enough data on where I will put my tools for right now. I am slowly working on where I could put "some" of the more critical spare parts somewhere on the boat.

Considering that my boat is a 1973 Catalina 27. Outboard version. No inboard engine. At least I don't have to worry about prop shaft packing gland failures and such. I only have to worry about the outboard konking out. And having the necessary replacement parts on hand?
