Like many boats her age, Bright Water has simple friction latches on the cabinet doors. If you mistakenly take her out in the ocean or a particularly rough lake, the contents of the cabinets tend to fly across the saloon, harshing your mellow and perhaps even triggering profane thoughts.

Many people do many things to contain their cabinet contents. We went to Walmart.


The “Yacht Fittings” section was not helpful, but the same doo-dads that keep babies out of your sink chemicals can keep cabinet chemicals out of your yacht.

They don’t do anything once mounted until enabled with a small button on the device. Once enabled they keep the cabinet shut until you hold a strong magnet directly over the device on the outside of the cabinet.


Easy peasy.
