I've been carrying a Victorinox Swiss Champion -- I bought it in Brugge on a touring trip through the Zermatt/Matterhorn area -- on my belt for about 35 years. And I can use that, along with a Leatherman tool, for maybe 90% of boat fix-it chores.

I agree it's a great tool and a good recommendation for other work... but I think it's not what OP is after here. Opening one-handed is not gonna happen. It's also too bulky to be a true "pocket" knife. And the main blade doesn't really "lock" into the open position.

FWIW, the other knife I carry all the time is a Benchmade pocket "flick" knife, which means it's mostly a "one-handed" piece. When we're fishing, the mate carries a Kershaw spring-assisted pocket knife. We keep a Buck folder onboard, for various chores, but it's not a "one-handed" model. My onboard emergency belt knife is a SOG "Pentagon" model, a 5" fixed blade with straight edge on one side and serrated on the other. Their shorter model might be less cumbersome when wearing it...

Spiderco, lock blade partially serrated folding knife. There is a tactical version with a push button opening popular with fire fighters but may be restricted in some areas. With some practice the folding knives can be opened with one hand. Handy to have a belt clip. Smith and Wesson and others are less expensive versions.

Pricey, but excellent quality and built for the marine environment (dendritic cobalt). I've had this clipped to my PFD for many years:

Bought this Spyderco and by accident touched the tip, which isn't even pointed, to my thumb and cut myself. This thing is the most ridiculously sharp knife I've ever owned. It cut though a piece of rope like it wasn't even there. Very impressive.

Never take a knife in the water you don't mind losing if you drop it.

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....

When we did the inland rivers I carried a couple of large non folding serrated knives in case one of the floating bollards in a lock got stuck.
