Re: Companionway locker for SM2K

Olaf,

I got the same "shock" this past winter when my lock failed.  The lock on my boat was not the original lock but was a very common door lock used throughout France.  I ended up getting this one:  https://www.amazon.fr/City-Verrou-suret%C3%A9-Cylindre-s%C3%A9curit%C3%A9/dp/B07JHTQXDQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1548273837&sr=1-1&keywords=verrou+city+25

The bolt pattern was perfect but I did have to modify it slightly to get it to fit. I had to shorten the locking bar by about ~10mm.  Also, it is definitely not "Marine Grade" so it will eventually rust out.  A little Corrosion X will help and since it only cost around €25, I figure that I can replace it 20 times and still save money! ;)
