    this kit features forged, tempered steel tools that are double-chrome plated against corrosion.”

    No, But mine is about 15 years old. Lives on the boat and all the tools are functioning. I had to use it on the last trip. Trolling motor prop hit a submerged log and snapped the shear pin.

    Lots of great ideas here. This is most of what I’ve put together: 99C7600C-ED64-4FAB-90B2-6060D4BD127E.jpeg
    I also added a roll of duct tape, an assortment of zip ties, a short handled ball peen hammer, and a couple spark plugs. Wiped everything down with some Corrosion X and tossed it in a roll top dry bag. All together it weighs 10 lbs. Also, in case all else fails, I tossed a fifth of whisky in there and taped my insurance card to the back. I’m with the person above who said “Sea Tow,” but sometimes those guys take hours and I can only not catch fish for so long.

    By the way, most of this stuff is Harbor Freight so I didn’t break the bank putting it together and I’m not worried if something happens to it.

    For me, just basic tools like most have listed. Though my electric start 15hp yamaha needed a few more specialized tools to disassemble enough for a pull start(what a PITA that was). Plan in advance (and take it apart at home)to what level of repair you will be required to make to get back to the ramp.
