This one was low-hanging fruit, I’ll admit that, but they do really come in handy. For some of the old timers, stealing the fingernail clippers from the house was the ticket back in the day. Just a short while ago, there weren’t hundreds of options when it came to line cutters for the boat. There was one rusty old set of needle nose pliers that had about as good a chance cutting through line as the boat paddle did. So keeping fingernail clippers in the boat was, and still is, a good idea.
