Re: Securing companionway?
I absolutely hate hatch boards, so I made a door out of Starboard for our companionway in an afternoon. It just slides into the groove for the hatch boards and is about as strong as hatch boards. A barrel bolt at the inside top keeps it closed when needed at sea and one at the inside bottom adds security when we aren't aboard.
