When boating on rougher waters, the door bounces up and down. It has rubber pads in between the locker and the door but that is only to protect the door from chipping. Has anybody come up with a clever way of securing this door on a periodic basis(besides duck tape)? Thanks

Check previous topics. I asked this question a few months ago and got some pretty good responces. I have yet to secure my hatch down. As I recall, velcro tabs in the corners were the best suggestion. I wasn't up for installing any more hardware to stub my toes on. See what you can find.

Funny, but on my Montauk, this isnt much of a problem. I must drive too conservatively in rough water. I have found that keeping the locker bone dry helps as well. If all else fails, plunk a passenger on the hatch!

Macman, you must drive slow. I'd bust the
passenger's butt up front. ;-)

Velcro is the answer. Note that there are
several grades of the hook and loop, and
several grades of the sticky stuff. You
need the good stuff. I posted the part
numbers here a while back.
