Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Nothing too fancy, but my wife wanted a way to lock the boat when we are staying on board at the dock.

Picked up a sliding bolt latch for about $4 at the hardware store. Not super secure, but an unobtrusive addition that matches the rest of the hardware.

It will help her sleep easier at night and at the very least, wake us (or the dog) up if anyone tries to pry it open. Also has the added benefit of being easy to undo should be need to get out.

I also oiled the teak slats this weekend - but did that after taking the picture.
