Best Boat ToolsBy Tom Neale
Published: June/July 2013
Beyond the basic tools that we all dutifully collect and keep in our boat tool kits — socket-wrenches, screwdrivers, and so on — here's an idiosyncratic collection of clever devices that this experienced live aboard boater has added to his arsenal over 40 years of doing his own boat work. In this exclusive online version of Tom's collection, we include 24 more tools and devices than we did in our magazine presentation in the December issue.
Tom Neale is the leader of our "Ask The Experts" team, a 40-year boater — including 30 years of living aboard — and the author of hundreds of technical articles in BoatUS Magazine and other leading marine publications.
