What Is This Thing?

While browsing a couple boats today, we came across a couple things. I'm a bit sheepish to have to ask about these two mystery objects, but I'm too curious not to.

This was on the stern of a Tanzer 22, starboard side. Anyone know what it is and what's it for? It certainly looked glommed on. Husband thought it might be for a logger.



There was also this triangular thingie on the bottom of a Tartan 27s keel. I thought it was to prevent any snagged lines to pass without snagging between the rudder and keel. I confess I am not sure. I didn't know what to call it though. A tab?



Thanks.

Well I'll Take A Shot

The top photo looks like a depth transducer mount. The second thingy is the bottom rudder mount. It holds the rudder on.
I know the name of it, but for the life of me I can't spell it right now. Either I am getting old and having a brain fart, or it's to early.

I'd agree that the first piece is for a transom mounted depth transducer. The second piece is the rudder shoe. It supports and protects the bottom of the rudder and allows it to pivot.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yikes, a rudder shoe/mount. Now I am embarrassed, but now I know and will never forget what it's called. I'll forgive myself for not knowing the other thing.

Thanks for the swift mystery solving

No, a gudgeon is for pintle hung rudders, and that isn't the case here.

I have another "what is this thing called" question. I know what it's for (at least I think so!), just figure it has a name other than "that streamlined bump on the hull".


"Tigress"
1964 Tartan 27

It may be a hole in the water, but it's mine.

This appears to be an added form placed on the hull to allow a depthsounder transducer to be mounted with the proper angle to send and receive impulses to an from the ground beneath the water.

It's just called an added form, then?
