Any ideas?

Open to suggestions.. What are these clips in the cockpit?

Fuel tank tie down maybe?

bungee clips for mast while trailering?
bungee attachment for poor man's tillerpilot?
toe stubbers?

Since you are asking, then I'd opine that they are unnecessary pieces of metal that are temporarily covering/sealing holes in your cockpit deck through which water will eventually seep.

Seriously though, they don't look original and seem to be relatively light wt so I'm guessing they're owner mods to achieve some unknown result. If you can't figure it out now, wait until you put the boat through her paces -- you may have a forehead slapping moment and discover the purpose. If not, remove and properly seal the deck penetrations.

Fuel tank tie down seems likely - unless there's a spot for the tank in one of the lockers. They are pretty light duty, as mentioned, and is that a 3rd odd man out there too??

tie downs for the cockpit stand to transport the mast

Why, why, why?

hmm, i'm still at a loss. I'm thinking fuel tank tie downs is the most likely culprit.. Toe stubber fits too. and that third random piece, is an old bolt off the trailer that got tossed in.. nothing attached permanently.

Mast support on this boat attaches in the tiller's place when it's removed, for trailering. Oh well, they're there, and for the moment anyways, look better than trying to fix the holes. So looks like they get to ride.

Re: Any ideas?

Posted a couple of pictures, of what i decided to do with the deals in the cockpit. not sure if that's what they were for, but keeps the back stay tensioner out of the way. Keeps the line right where I need it too.

Also, anybody got any ideas where I can get a bimini that doesn't cost an arm and leg?
