Another day with 150m cloud base and a drizzle. Good day for working in the galley. One small issue has been the opening of drawers when heeled over on a starboard tack. If the drawer is full of stuff it is to heavy to lift in the small locking knob. So now I have added a handle too:

The next problem I need to solve is the opposite situation: A more solid locking for port tacks in rough seas. The locks tend to not be strong enough to keep the drawers shut. Sometimes they come open. There is quite a bit of weight pushing on that small lock when the boat heels over. Not sure how to do it best right now. We’ll see.
