    Maybe some of you salty dogs can tell me what this mystery contraption is... It was in my house when I bought my home, but I have no idea what it is.. The ends of it are angled sort of like it would mount in the front of a boat hull...

    No one?

    It doesn't look homemade, so it's probably a commercial contraption.

    Can I state the obvious..... looks like a giant beer opener! LOL

    It also looks like a sewing guide foot. Commercial production
    Can you locate previous owners to gain knowledge?

    Kinda looks like a anchor stay, to keep the anchor and chain from banging the bow of the boat.

    It's something to hang on the wall so people can go "What the hell is that?!"

    It has no manufacturer's name or mark on it?

    you should pot it to the forum at wooden boat magazine, if its boat related someone there will recognize it. my thought is it might be some type of tabernacle. a tabernacle holds a removable mast in position in a sailboat.

    I'll post it there for you, if you please.

    I'm asking around on other forums as well, so far -- no luck :)

    It looks like a homemade hawsepipe, but I could be wrong.

    I was actually thinking it might be a henway.
