In heavy seas things tend to pop open if not secured. Such was the case with the toilet paper dispenser door. When I went to close it the piano hinge had sprung. So my small project for today was to remove the door, fill the screw holes with toothpicks soaked in wood glue, let the entire thing dry and then reassemble it. Which I did.
I realized that the next time I went out in the ocean this would likely happen again. So once the repair was complete I added an external latch to prevent it from popping open again. Hopefully this will do the trick.
Fair winds and following seas :)
