All that's well and good. But don't kid yourself, it's still going to get your someday because we all say to ourselves "it will be Ok for just this 1 time"

I know a guy who cant poke his nose with his index finger because of one of those spring supports.

Re: Locker Lid slams on my Head!

The trick with the springs is to use two of them. It's hard to bump both by accident. The gas springs are better but like Cheechako said it's tricky to get the right one.

Block the lid open with one of your flotation cushions set on edge. You do have flotation cushions on the boat, don't you?
