Re: magnetic hatches?

Any mad inventors out there?
Seems if there were some clever way to eliminate the objectionable stray magnetic fields, that hatch magnets might be put to good use in more boats.
I couldn't think of anything cheap and simple.
(Doodled with the idea of the two mating magnets forming a closed magnetic circuit with hatch closed, and somehow being shorted when hatch is open.)
