An oscillating multitool comes in handy for cutting and sanding in tight spaces. There are several different blade attachments to work on wood, metal or tile. We use ours to clean out seams, sand and cut plank scarfs. Read our full article on Small Boats Monthly.
One tip is to use a metal blade even when cutting wood, in case there is a metal fastener hidden inside.
A good companion to the multitool is a sharpener, this wheel from Rigid Carbide lets us refresh worn and damaged blades and get several more uses out of them.
