With the arrival of spring, those of us dwelling in the higher latitudes are starting to thaw out and think about tackling long delayed boat projects (except for my colleague Mark, who gets his repairs done early living on his Sabre year-round). I start most of my projects with a pry bar. Steritool makes three sizes of pry bars from 13.5- to 18-inches long ($94 - $147), all of which are stainless steel with no paint or plating to flake off. Think of all the projects waiting for you once you're finished with the pry bar. Steritool makes tools for those tasks, too.
