Storing your secondary tools, and hardware. Plano 7771 tackle box
One thing I've always struggled with, is my secondary travel box for my marine hardware such as bolts/nuts/washers, crimp-clamps, etc... the crap just ends up everywhere but organized.
I remembered that when I went to school for electronics, we were using tackle boxes for organizing all those little resistors, etc... so why not hardware? I found this monster tackle box on Amazon. They sell replacement trays, etc... It's not locking, but it's plastic, so no big deal.
Apparently, they have many different companies, and sizes to match whatever needs you have... I'm used to the old fold-out tray, tiny boxes. I was blown away.
I don't think it will take abuse, like a metal box, but with a little care, it should keep my stuff in better order.
Here is a short list of everything inside:
-soldering iron, solder and stand
-fluke 77 dmm
-many types of specialized pliers/cutters.
-many types of rivets.
-many types of crimp-clamps
-drawers of M4-M10 SST hardware, and specialty hardware.
-Prop removal tools.
-bolt/nut sizing guide.

If that's your secondary set of tools and extras, I'd like to see the main set.
You ride well prepared. Kind of like a small service shop.
