Velcro works well too... and allows you to close the lid as needed.

So lash your computer down. It don't take much effort to do so if you have installed two Tie-down points for it and a bungee cord.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
