What’s in Your
Onboard Toolbox?

As an owner of a Grady-White, you are fortunate to likely not experience a mechanical emergency while on the water. Having tools at hand is still a good idea!

Tool Kit

As every good scout knows, “Be Prepared” is a wise motto in life and that goes for The Grady Life, too! Your dealership service department can help get your toolbox stocked, and refer to your owner’s manual for more specific information. Here’s a list of tools, supplies and spare parts to keep aboard preferably in an airtight moisture resistant marine toolbox:

  • Flashlight and batteries/bulb
  • Screwdrivers, slotted and Phillips head
  • Wrenches, adjustable and mini
  • Pliers, double jointed/tongue & groove and needle nose
  • Wire cutters (for crab pot lines, etc.)
  • Multi-tool pocketknife
  • Duct tape
  • Electrical tape
  • Zip ties (assorted)
  • Assorted fuses and fuse puller (tube or wafer)
  • Assorted light bulbs (including for running lights)
  • Fuel pump, filter and container for drainage
  • Fuel/water separator filter (one per engine)
  • Transom drain plug (especially for trailered boats)
  • Prop and prop wrench (round)
  • Voltmeter and connectors (#8 round)
  • Hose clamps (#20)

To go the extra nautical mile, perhaps more to assist others who are not running a reliable Grady, 50-foot towlines are handy to have aboard. Towing insurance provides additional peace of mind. Keep phone numbers handy. Be prepared to enjoy many great Grady days!
