    Makes a good tool kit box for all but the jumper cables.

    Pass the "Sportsman Baton" on before you're gone, promote values for others to hunt and fish upon.

    I carry a full set of standard and metric wrenches and sockets as well as adjustable wrench,screw drivers,pliers,sidecutters, booster cables and a lithium 2000 watt booster pack. Maybe it's overkill but I like to be prepared.

    I have one in green. Waterproof(mostly) is a must. I used to carry alot of tools but modern engines are harder to fix on the fly.
    I have a couple screwdrivers, needlenose(hook removers), plyers, cressent, plugs, elec tape, lots o fuses, jumper cables, and a little tiny jump battery.
    Anyone thinking of changing a prop should have spare shear pins or equivalent.

    Question
    Is the cotter pin really a shear pin?
    Is its function to break at a certain load or is it just to keep the castle nut from coming off if it gets a little loose?

    Thanks

    Brett, they make some nice marine tool kits in waterproof containers for boats. I bought one a walmart 20 years back. Look on amazon.

    Brett make sure you check to see if the prop shaft isn't bent. I had a similar incident right before my motor crapped out where I hit a log while idling. Unknowing I bent the shaft just a little, just enough to allow the oil to drip out and water to get in past the seals.

    First, the plastic ammo can with rubber seal cuz rusted tools are junk. Plastic floating prop wrench was the best money I ever spent. Cotter pins, electric tape, channel locks, hammer with the handle sawed down to fit in the box, screwdrivers to fit everything critical, spare key, wire cutter/needle nose combo, hose clamp for fuel line, tie wraps, spare drain plug, a few feet of 12 ga wire, and Iím probably forgetting a few things. Yes, I carry all this crap, wanna see?

    Cotter pin isn’t a shear pin, though in a pinch you might get by with one at idle. Shear pin goes into prop shaft and the prop sits over it and the prop nut holds it down, like a trolling motor prop setup. Old school. If you hit something you broke the shear pin, not the prop. Now there’s rubber between the spline collar and the prop which takes some of the punishment. It’s was goes away when you spin a prop.
