Onboard tools

Iím in a quandary. Iíve got a garage/workshop full of tools and Iím trying to figure out what to take and what to get rid of. What, in your opinion, are the ďmust haveĒ and the ďnice to haveĒ tools onboard? Iím a person comfortable with engine, electrical, plumbing and have a stalemate agreement with carpentry. I can do it but am by no stretch a shipwright. Also, how many of each hand tool?

So...

Hand tools?
Test equipment? (DVM etc)
Power tools?
Air tools and compressor?

Thanks all.

Re: Onboard tools

My first year I took enough tools to rebuild the engine if necessary. Air tools, big sockets, etc. Looking back it was a little foolish as it was a lot of weight and took up a fair amount of space.

I have pared it down quite bit but I do have multiples of things used topsides quite often. These are things such as nippers, pliers, and all sorts of sizes and types of screw drivers. Why? They seem to jump over the side on their own quite often.

In my experience, if it can jump over the side or fall into the most inaccessible part of the boat....it will.
