I don't know the answer, but I know what it's not
After 1 year on the hard my companionway doors have spread about 1cm and don't latch anymore.

Wish mine would spread a bit more. Door frame to my aft cabin door has compressed and I can't get the door to close. At least in my situation if it stays that way I can trim the door a little to make it fit. Tricky to stretch a door to make it wider.
