Re: Whats this?

Well if it's not a tacker you could certainly use it as one!

one clue is the orientation of the sailmakers logo. It appears that it was intended to be used with the grommets down, which supports the theory that it might be meant to sling over the boom. The construction does not appear very robust, so I doubt it was intended to handle much load.
