Power Tools

Far too much stuff.

I am a sucker for all those bargin bins at the local hardware store, I come across tools and fittings on the boat that I have bought and stowed, only to wonder what the hell does that tool do.

Sometimes I find I have two or more of the same mystery tool. So not only have I forgotten what I bought the tool for I have forgotten that I had even bought the thing in the first place. If ever i find I have three of the same tools on board , it may be time to see the doc for some of those little red pills.

RE: Power Tools

10x12 plastic*tarp (may switch to canvas when I find one I like)*with 20 feet or so lines attached to the grommets.* Its*to lower and position over the side of a larger hole or crack*(for the holes bigger than a nerf football).

Assorted sizes of*1/4 inch plywood up to 2x2 feet with drill driver and drywall screws...plus assorted strips of 2x2 inch foam rubber as gasket material.

You can forget all that stuff if you have a great dingy and good insurance

Guilty! * I'm always running across tools and devices I bought cuz I thought I'd need it. *Not only did I forget about it, but I've often wished I had it long before I discovered it again, making the re-discovery even better than when I found it in the store, cuz this time, I don't even have to pay for it!

RE: Power Tools

We probable have more mechanical and wood tools than most. *We have a small air compressor, and a small portable welder.* Ive used the air compress mainly to pump up toy/things.* The Welder I bought to repair the middle diesel tank as the welder, did not have a small poratble machine and the cable where to short. *I even have a small drill press, ta le saw and mitter saw, that I can set up on the stern deck.* When we remodles the boat the back enclosed deck was a work area/shop.* Now its my wife sawing/quilting area.*
*

I have tools in three locations the engine room with its own bench, the salon roof storage box, and the helm.* However, to day I bought a new crowbar, 5 bucks, as I did not want to bother finding the ones that are on the boat.* So you name it I probable have it, someplace if I can find it?
