    Default What's in your boat tool box:

    So I'm running late on Saturday morning and don't have time to repack the tool box for the boat at 6:30 am so I just grab tools and throw them in the box. I pulled the box in and out a few times this weekend and said " Damn this thing is heavy" Yep it was:

    42 lbs:






    I think it was about 6-8 lbs heavier than it should be. Maybe by the time next season comes around I'll have it figured out

    That crap adds up after a bit.

    You should be able to limit the tool box to just the Hammer/channellock tool and be good. lol.

    My tool box has a 1/2 ratchet and extension for turning the blower over.

    The metric and standard box wrench set from Harbor freight (new each year)

    A set of allen wrenches

    Feeler guage

    SOme connectors and a small roll of wire

    Wire struppers/crimps

    the set of AN wrenches

    Injection pills and holder

    Pill removal tool.

    some black RTV

    2 all sixteenths wrenches. (Crescent)

    1- 3/4" socket for my crank bolt just in case.

    Spare 1/8 pipe plugs incase oone comes out of the headers and out the J drain.

    Spare plug.

    Wax as you dry

    Latex gloves

    Plug wrench

    Spare set of plugs

    Test light

    A couple zip ties

    5-7 spare bolts and nuts

    one of each screw driver

    That kit seems to work fairly well for both boats. it is a little bulky but no owher near 47 lbs. one more tool and you would be paying extra to fly on southwest. I really don't think you NEED 4 crescent wrenches and all the channellocks.

    No calculator?

    Radar? Lidar? Laser?

    Lap top?

    Abbicus?

    If this tool box was out of the boat you could have added another "Tool box" for the "Not gay all male river run". lol

    LOL... you should see the all the crap that I used to carry in my 21 daycruiser. Since I got the 21' daytona, a lot of things got left out. Tools are not one of them though Seems like everyone else uses them.

    I once saw Widowmaker do a complete engine rebuild including a 3 angle valve job, a bottom blueprint, trailer bearing repair and re-gelcoat a boat all at the sandbar one day with all the shit he carried in the cruiser.

    Damn Sleeper, I thought I carried a lot of stuff, lol... Got me wondering now, gonna see how much my boat bag weighs, may be hampering performance.

    I carry a canvas electricians bag which contains:

    small Crescent wrench

    9/16", 1/2", 7/16", 3/8" wrenches

    bone wrench

    small pipe wrench

    2 pairs of baby vice grips

    4 screwdrivers (standard & stubby versions of phillips & standard)

    hex key set

    zip ties

    test light

    crimping pliers/strippers

    ziploc bag of various electrical connectors, small roll of wire, some fuses

    ziploc bag of various hardware (nuts, bolts, washers, hose clamps, vacuum caps, etc...)

    electrical tape

    knife

    tube of black rtv (which is probably dry, lol)

    rags

    small funnel

    extra drain plug

    Pretty sure thats it and knock on wood, only time I've had to dip into it myself was for some zip ties to rig my EZ-Up, most other times it was stuff other people needed. Anything happens to mine that the bag can't cover, its going on the trailer...

    a 9/16" combination wrench to get my hand hole cover off..............(just in case). Don't have a box to keep it in. It's just a wrench.

    Oh yeah, and a scale to weigh it with.
