In a knockdown, the most important thing is to keep water out of the boat. If it fills, it'll sink. When foul weather is expected, the hatchboards should be in place, and all opening hatches should be secured. Also, people often forget to secure the cockpit hatch lids, and, if the lids fly open in a knockdown and the locker fills, it can quickly sink a boat. A padlock or other device should be kept in the hasp at all times.
