Re: Storage Under the Companionway.....

You might want to add pin stops to the back walls of the drawers so they cannot come all the way out unless you want them to do so as well as locking pins to hold them closed. I have seen more than one boat with the contents of its drawers and lockers dumped out in rough seas.

FWIW...
