Back to the maintenance again! I have given up on the way I had set up the stern locker originally. Now it is hinged with hasps both sides under the seat to make it properly lockable. I have also put a strip of 20mm x 3mm flat brass bar on the top edge of the transom to protect it. The edge was getting a battering from dragging the rudder in over it. It also got fairly gnarled from an outboard propellor when tied to a pontoon. Also pictured is the brass rod clip on the thole lanyards.
