Re: What on earth is this?
It is a pre-feeder for a Hood furling system. It should be tied to the furling drum and positioned about 2' below the foil feeder. Some versions the pre-feeder is fastened to the deck.
The luff tape on your headsail is fed into the pre-feeder and then into the foil. The pre-feeder's function is to align the luff with the feeder on the furling system foil.
