Speaking of damage control, I was in the BigBox Store recently looking for an angle grinder for some entirely non-marine purposes. And I saw that Makita makes a battery
powered version of their angle grinder.
It struck me as possibly a very good tool for a boat
, since an angle grinder with a cutting blade on it could make fast work
going through any damaged rigging
, shrouds, pieces of boom or mast
Certainly a hacksaw with a carbide blade can do the same jobs, but nowhere near as fast. Of course the hacksaw is way way cheaper and always "charged", just nowhere near as fast.
