    Don't forget an "Assistant Wrench". K447 has one! Worth the investment.

    +1 on the band aids

    flexible mag pickup
    super long needle nose pliers

    when you drop stuff into the hull on these skis it's a huge problem

    that being said, some low cost tools that you won't mind feeding the ski with. Something gets under the engine plate, it may not come out for a long while.
