New Lock

I have a new lock for the rear deck, boat doors on the Bernadine. I have had the idea for some time that I would like to replace the modern, silver, Master Lock with something a bit more vintage and "brassy". Well I found one, and it cost me less than a new one at the hardware store! This lock came from an old U.S. Government Ordnance Department facility. It was made by the Wilson Bohannon Company. I don't know exactly how old it actually is, but I would guess 1960's or so. It will be secured to the boat with a brass chain and small bronze pad eye. Another small step in the right direction!
