Reader Tips: Seal Up Your Tools

Spray critical items with WD-40, and then use a vacuum sealer to keep the parts and tools corrosion-free.

Nothing is worse than having an emergency on the water and finding your rarely used tools a rusty mess, or worse, rendered unusable by the elements. A preservation technique I’ve found effective is to lightly spray your critical items with WD-40, and then use a vacuum sealer to keep the parts and tools corrosion-free, dry and ready. This is also a good way to keep things neat and organized in your toolbox.
