Just to help out those who don''t know, a reefer lid is technically 1.0 ounces of reefer, not counting baggie or papers.

a couple of stainless flat strap eyes screwed to the top on ether side of the lid I guess you are talking about a flush lid and a fiberglass sail batten of the right length. Just slid the batten it in one eye and bend it in the middle and slip it in the other end and you have it. You can use the batten to spank the crew if they like that sort of thing and it is handy to get at as most of them will be close to where the food is.

If your drawers fly open on shore here, you''ll get arrested. As for the eyes, that depends on who''s look''n. I keep mine up with a piece of twine. Sorry, I just couldn''t resist!!!! That''s the problem with refers, not that I have one.

This message string is not in reference to Jimmy Buffet type refers. It is about refrigerator/ freezer hatches.

I had a problem with drawers that kept flying open at sea and sovled it by putting a couple of pad eyes near the drawers so I could run bungee cords over them while at sea. I could pull the bungee to the side to get access but otherwise it held the drawers closed. A couple of bungee cords running across the hatches might do the trick for you and would be easier to install than hinges.

Maybe you should leave the reefer at home and just rely on good old cigarettes and boos when at sea. ;-)
