One point is to keep it secure and keep it from accidentally opening. Another is to keep guests and kids aboard from opening it unless you want them to. Then the third is to keep non-professional thieves, petty thieves from accessing.

same lock used on desks, file cabinets etc. Look in your old keys pile and try them all. Wiggle the keys and if it is close it will work. Those locks are easy to replace and available at hardware stores.

Iím trying to figure out why you put a lock on THAT in the first place. Itís just a washdown.

A thin knife blade may open that lock. Either in the lock or to pry back the latch.

Greetings,
Ms. S. "It’s just a washdown." Maybe it was initially installed as a beer tap that someone simply converted to a washdown.

Now, IF you attend the p*ss-up in Ft. Pierce next year perhaps you can convert it back to what it was intended for originally. If done, you're pretty well a shoe-in for "best boat" BUT if you do, keep the lock on. Just sayin'...
