The lids on the anchor and front storage compartments in my 2004 220 do not quite fit tight when closed and make noise when stepped on. Also, "bang" when using boat in rough water. Thinking of using some type of foam like a door seal to dampen them. Any ideas much appreciated.

I had the same problem on my 150 Sport. The remedy is to purchase a package of clear silicon buttons with self adheasive backing from Home Depot, Lowes or any hardware store. I found mine sold where the furniture coasters are since the buttons are intended for use under glass table top covers.
I stuck mine under the lid of the anchor locker and it works great!

Ear plugs. You've got to be kidding. Take it back to the dealer and have him deal with it. .02

Marine-grade Sticky-Back Velcro. The normal Sticky-Back
doesn't hold up when wet. When I found it six years ago
I had to be 25 yards of each. I've recently seen it at
Lowe's or Home Depot (I think Lowe's) in smaller quantities,
and Northern Tool has it too.

The non-marine-grade stuff only lasted a few outings before
the adhesive gave up from water. The marine-grade stuff lasts
about a year before the hooks and loops give up from opening.
