When we were getting ready to move back to fairbanks from saint louis my wife decided to have a garage sale when I wasn't home.

Besides making a few hundred dollars we also greatly reduced the about of junk we're hauling back to Alaska.

I could never tell what was missing! :-)

What else is there besides tools and spares?

The latches will come in handy for sure!
Four soldering irons, maybe you could get rid of two. I have not seen anyone use two soldering irons at one time but if you are trying to solder a big lug or something it may work. Otherwise it always good to have a spare iron.
My problems is I always want a spare of everything....

Well my pilot house reorganization has expanded to include the engine room.

What you see in this photo is virtually all my spare parts that had been stored in a rush before departure.

Not shown are the many feet of all size hoses that are stored between the muffler and the battery box and about 40 Racor filters.

For every bin, large or small, I have a sheet of paper to list the contents. I'll then computerize that list in the coming weeks.

Pilot House is almost done. I also re wired the helm computer, AIS, router, Maretron, Wi-Fi and router so that they still have power if I turn off pilot house breaker. They now go thru individual switches and breakers, then to an independently powered breaker on helm distribution panel.

I also discovered that the first owner bought the same spare hose and belts kit from American Diesel that I did.

So while I've only changed the fan belt once in the last 2000 hours, I now have 4 new and two used.

Because the KK pilot house has so much storage space under the helm, that I had all that stuff hidden for the last two years

In repacking everything, the engine room spares in particular, I threw away three garbage cans of boxes and shipping material.

The last days in Rhode Island were hectic. It went right fromt he UPS truck into the ER. But I packed the ER well enough that in spite of the heavy weather, everything stayed nicely in place, except for the pipe wrench, but I have already told that story.

The only way I can ever find anything is to buy another one. Then you get to a certain point where you have enough of something (3 or 4 soldering irons) that you are able to find them when needed.

Actually, that clearly has been my strategy.

But the problem is that at times I could not find even one of the four

Organizing works like a diet. Just give it a few months and you're back where you started. The only real cure is to be banned from West Marine, Harbor Freight, and others of that ilk. Otherwise it's hopeless. Don't ask how I know.

You do keep your philips head screwdrivers with the handles on the left, points on right? Of course the opposite for the standards. After all, P is before S in the alphabet and if all of the face the same direction it's easy to feel/find 'em.

I am a bit organized.

HA! Ours are in a bin that we keep in the pilot house, it has other general tools like pliers and cutters.

I start out that way, but then forget the scheme

That will be an exact image of my PH in July. I can't wait to get aboard and start the annual re-inventory process again. It's like organizing Halloween candy after a big night of "trick or treating" or sorting the golf balls collected after "raiding" the ponds at the local golf course 55 - 60 years ago. It only costs more!
