I have commented before that my toolbox weighs probably 150 pounds. Way more tools than I really need but I am prepared for any emergency. Of course I can't lift it but I have applied carpet to the bottom so I am able to slide it out of its hiding place under the lower help seat. Most of my "wrench" time is, of course in the bilge. When I need tools on the flybridge I have a small "traveling toolbox". Smaller than a small briefcase . Pliers, side cutters, phillips and straight screwdrivers, small hammer, tape and an adjustable wrench. There are a couple other things in it but it weighs less than 5 pounds and is easy to carry upstairs or onto the dock if the bikes need attention.

( Don't tell the Admiral I used the words "way more tools than I need")
