Bayliner 175 owners, what tools do you make sure you always have on board for emergency repairs?

open ends, small socket kit, extra spark plugs, voltmeter, screws drivers with rubber handles or plastic (all sizes) Put all these tool into a small west marine sealed box, and sits under rear storage seat by motor. Just do what I did, open up the engine cover and run through some of the nuts and bolts and get general sizes needed. Good to go!

A little humor... :o In place of tools, just take this guy along w/you. He should be able to keep things in pretty good working order. By the sounds of things, all you'd probably need to do is just toss him a bone and a $10.00 bill now and again. :D

I have an inexpensive tool kit with the tools in molded spaces: makes it easy to be sure everything is put away when you're done. The tools are several wrenches and pliers. I have a small box for fuses and light bulbs.
When I travel, I take a prop wrench and spare prop. I don't think I ever used anything except the screw driver to change a light bulb while on the water.

The new addition for me in the past five years has been silicone tape. Man, has that come in handy.

This might sound strange, but besides all the standard stuff that you would pack for tools, if I ever use any tool on the boat it stays in the boat. I hate having to say "if I only had a _________ with me we would be back on the water!". I also like to pack weird things; safty wire, tape, rivits, electrical wire and crimps, etc.


Oh, and a pair of diving goggles for when you find an old steel cable from a buoy or something and wrap it up with your prop, found out that one the hard way.

I started with one of those "48 piece" toolsets that come inexpensive - has socket set, screwdriver set, and allen wrenches. I put it in a tool bag and added a crescent wrench, voltmeter, linemans pliers, silicone tape, and a box cutter knife. I always look for chrome plated tools that resist rusting. I probably need more, but thats it for now.

Don't forget the vice grips and the flashlight for those hard to see places.

And the best tools of all= unlimited Tow Boat US membership card and a ship to shore radio.

Molded spaces holds everything in place! No need to spend 100's of dollars on a set from Snap-On. Carry 1 or more flashlights and a magnetic part tray and extension because you will eventually drop a part under the motor...trust me, I know from experience. :D
