Checked out your site awhile back. Very cool, makes me want to go sailing.
I assume you know all about these. Floating screwdrivers from AmPro.
Actually, Jeff, I did not know about them. I went to Amazon and found this set.

That's when youll want this handy 6-pc. floating screwdriver set around.

Includes three Phillips screwdrivers (3-inch #0 and #1 sizes and a 4-inch #2) and three slotted screwdrivers (3-inch 5/32in. and 3/16in. and a 4-inch 1/4in.). Limited lifetime warranty.
I think you might have given me an idea for a birthday present for myself!
