These are the best

We use these from Harbor Freight. They’re the best because the little yellow bins come out so you can carry them with you to the job. Better than the divided sections. They come in different sizes

https://www.harborfreight.com/20-bin...ase-93928.html

On our sailboat we had a workshop with a couple dozen of these boxes and intend to do the same on whatever trawler we end up with. Here’s a link to the post we did about it.

Storage solutions

There is no one solution but one I find very useful is to acquire a good supply of ziplock bags. My favorite is 4x 6. This allows you to keep like items together yet takes little more space than throwing everything in a box.

That is such a good point. I was on a sailboat (so granted, fewer square spaces), and as much as I wanted to have a box or bin for everything, Zip-Loc bags made so much sense, and such a superior use of space (I hated to admit it but finally had to).

There are more spaces where you can efficiently use a box shape on a trawler, but still not every place.

I keep my electrical crimps in Zip Locs. Each specific one in a small parts bag, and then all of the like-sized mini bags together in larger bags (pink, blue, yellow), and then all of those in a huge bag. Not quite as satisfying as a tidy box, but soo space efficient. No empty air, soft, and conformable.

I bought these in 2006 and they have been halfway around the world in almost daily use. I am pretty sure I got them at the container store in FL. I have 6 of them, one for electrical, one for plastic cable ties etc., one for small screws, one for larger hardware, one for Stainless fittings etc. and one for rubber bungs/etc.

I have not had a problem with parts emigrating from their compartments. They are actually stored on edge and the compartments are sufficiently tight to the lid that the parts remain in their correct compartments even in this storage configuration. ~Alan

Oh, wow, just discovered Sortimo https://www.mysortimo.us/en_US/Stora...c/47146?q=:tsa - apparently Adam Savage (Mythbusters) is a fan of their work. Looks pretty extreme (and priced to match)!

Those Sortimo's are pretty gnarly, all right! Probably a good choice
if you are carrying your goodies on a plane to or from your boat.

I just might have to try some out for the next boat.

We used bins from American Van in a work truck and beat them around on a daily basis for years. The only problem we ever had was that we broke one of the sliding latches. Parts stayed in place just fine. $24 each for 16x13x3 case.

I use a fishing tackle box. Lots of slots to put same size nuts, bolts, screws, etc. The bottom can handle larger "stuff". With it's handle it easy to move around with you where ever you need it.
