Very few things to worry about on my boat. I just buy one of these every few years and donate the old one to Goodwill.
And I love these.

Not to mention that it is a lot more accessible.

Also, the assembled cabinet weighs about 400 pounds so it was assembled in modules. The top is fiddled and serves as a small work bench as well as a counter when barbecuing. We just love this cabinet and it is in a place that is out of the way.

That takes the cake!

What a cool looking storage chest!

Thanks everyone for your input, I will be going with two backpack bags, one for mechanical tools the other for electrical. Tools are not an issue, spent last 30+ years restoring classic cars and motorcycles as a hobby, my best friend is a retired navy electronics guru and is assembling me a first class electronics bag of goodies. I made my decision based on the size of the boat, (34 foot Mainship) All my tools will be kept near my home port and I can swap them out as needed for projects, while keeping must have tools on the boat all the time.
