Can someone identify this thing?

When I bought my Oday 25, several of these things were in a box of misc. parts. Just can''t figure out what it is. Thanks

I looked at the photo yesterday. I thought someone might have identified them by now.
I don''t know what they are for but they look like some kind of "dog" like you would see on an opening port.

I agree with the previous post. It looks like a "dog". Not being familiar with the Oday, or the length, strength or other metrics the possible applications are speculative at best. I have seen people modify their hatchs to the companionway with items like this to minimize the affects of green water attacks. Sorry to not have definitative answers.

Thanks guys....I would swear that I''ve seen one of these before, but just couldn''t put my finger on it. The last time I couldn''t identify a part, just before tossing it, I posted a message and it turned out to be a "tiller tamer" which is one of the most used items on my boat. WHEW! Thanks

That appears to be a tensioning device for a heavy duty hacksaw or coping saw and does not appear to be stainless steel.

I would guess that you own a hacksaw. If not, stop in at a local hardware store and look at one. What you have is the adjustor that fits just in front of the handle and is used to hold the blade (the pin goes through the hole in the blade) and tightening the wing nut provides tension to hold the blade in the frame of the saw.
