Heavy Duty Felt Pads Work Wonders

Heavy Duty Felt Pads provide protection for your boat and come in a variety of sizes. They are typically used to protect floors and tabletops and  can be purchased at a variety of stores.  Place the pads in areas where a cabinet door comes in contact with the bulkhead. For example on our 30 marlin, we've placed one on the bulkhead behind the head so when the lid is open, it won't bang against the bulkhead. We've also placed them on various knobs in the cabin; control panel knob, galley storage cabinets and the storage cabinet in the bathroom----it works great.
