Hi all

Have just started out sailing and I'm trying to work out what tools I need to get hold off.

So far I've just taken a rusty old pair of pliers and knife and a flat head screwdriver. I've seen a few sailors using multi tools.

What do you all recommend? If a multi tool which one? If separates which tools?

Leatherman multi-too (with pliers, knife, screw drivers), a couple short lengths of line, and a few extra shackles & clevis pins. That's about it most of the time.

On the boat? Just an adjustable wrench, shalkles, pins, line and weatherman. Wish I had a stainless steel adjustable wrench. In the truck, so much more. One to note is rivit tool and stainless rivets.

These claim corrosion resistance and Wikipedia says that alloy is good for sea water: https://www.amazon.com/Ampco-Safety-Too ... ark+wrench. I've never tried them.
