The old-school tool-bags that lay out flat when you put them on the floor are great - Tools spread out so you can see them, easy to toss tools onto them instead of putting them where they'll roll off/fall through/forget where you put them, and you can just grab the loop handles & everything is gathered up to move everything with you.

The sort of thing plumbers used to use.

All of your five tape measures have migrated to the workbench!
All of your pencils have rolled under the floor boards!
The only speed square (which normally stays in the boat) somehow ends up on the workbench !


On the other hand, the steps and the walking do my legs good! :)

Earlier this year I went to a boat show and the only thing I came away with was a hearing aid show bag, how sad is that.

Yesterday I finished fairing the sheer clamp so it is parallel to the deck beam. My personal choice of weapon to do the bulk of the fairing is a 4" angle grinder with a 120 grit sanding pad. Down side is it gets pretty dusty. I've tried electric and hand plane but the grinder works for me.
Today I fitted and glued the first laminations of the deck clamp. In total there will be 4 laminations including the mahogany filler on the outside edge. I will leave the mahogany filler out for the moment till I am doing the deck and get the sapele milled in one go.
So after this the jobs on the list will be clean out the glue dags inside the hull, finish fairing the transom and re-coat the inside with epoxy and finish with a bilge paint.
