Sailing – Adafruit tool kit!

Boatbits-Header-Trans-1000
We’re starting to see lots of folks outside the Arduino / DIY electronics world post and share that they use our tools for with their hobbies, this is great! Here’s one from “Boat Bits!” RLW writes –

…other electrical devices on boats are not so user friendly and we face a constant uphill battle to keep all of the various electric and electronic goodies on “So It Goes” working and Radio Shack level tools are simply not up to the task. A really great basic electrical tool set up is available from Adafruit (who does one of my favorite geeky blogs… remember the Bedazzler?) and is just the thing needful for modern day electrical repairs. They also sell a bunch of neat kits which the building of would give you the skills to deal with what ails your chart plotter or loose connection in a running light. Of course, you will also need what I consider the bibles of marine power knowledge from the Ample Power folks “Wiring 12 Volts for Ample Power” and “Living on 12 Volts With Ample Power” as compared to what else is out there, they are simply the best.
