Who prefers slam latches or cam latches on your storage doors?


I will be replacing all (8) doors on my Cape Horn soon, currently all slam latches.  All are very aged and most have broken hinges, some have broken latches.

I hate anything that slams .even the guy that slams the cooler shut every time when he gets the beer. It's hard enough to close anything gently on a boat when on the sea or on way.most people dont have good sea legs.. its plastic, its gonna break ,and slamming it only breaks it quicker. If you ask me the guy who made this is a genius probly makes millions and never has to warranty a single one cause its gonna break. I like the look better yes but functionality  no.  They all will leak. Btw if you have a wife or girl they hate the slam latches cause to open it you gotta pull with your finger tips and it breaks there nails.....
