Magnetic, renewable insert tip screw drivers are the only way to go,
As far as the bit goes, magnetic is a non-factor on a boat, because screw-in fasteners should be stainless or bronze or nylon/plastic type material.

I had to pull a couple dozen ancient fasteners this afternoon. Man, was I ever glad that the Canadian builder had used all Robertson fasteners! They would have surely stripped had they not been.
