Is this thing that you're making going to support the radio or is it just a cover? If it is just a light cover it may be easier just to use Velcro.
It's a panel that will support the VHF, Stereo/CD, and some 12v outlets. I'll have additional space left over to add more later if I want. Of course, I'll still support the larger stereo from the aft end.

The teak is 1/2" marine ply, so it's plenty strong. I think the 304 is fine for interior, but I'm still open to suggestions on how to enclose and keep it as simply (but looking decent) as possible. Here's a pic of a nav station like ours, though it's not our boat. I'm enclosing the space above the shelf, but only about half of it--the half that's over the nav desk.

The Gemini latches work well spray with silicone lube on plunger to stop sticking as they will when not used frequently

JOs,

Check out this. I know its not teak, but its a simple solution. It removes easily for work, it pivots so you can work on the wires without removing them, it can fully enclose you stereo to protect it against dust and moisture. We leave the faceplate open when we use it, also have a remote. When we leave the boat or not in use we close the smoked front faceplate. Ours is at/ above our Nav station also

Hey Dave, Thanks for the rec. That's similar to what we have now (for the stereo that is), but we really want to close off the area above the shelf completely. We kind of need a panel, because we need a place to put some 12v outlets at the nav (there really isn't a good spot), plus we need a place for the stereo, VHF, and possible a Link Lite battery monitor. So when you put all those together, well, that's how we got to adding a panel!

And thanks everyone for the ideas on latches. I really appreciate it!
