Fish club, or sex toy?

Those are my only two guesses! What the heck is this thing??



Oh, and while I have you looking, what are these homemade things on my stanchions? There are two of them, one on each stanchion on the starboard side, none on the port. The holes are too small for sheets or halyards to run through.




Thanks for looking!

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

how about a pic of the whole boat? The stick... to keep the outboard in place when up tilted? What's the pipe for where the outboard would go? mast support when stepped?
the little blocks with holes on the stanchions... PO used a down haul on the Jib sails because it doesn't have roller furling?
PCP and downeast450 like this.

The holes don't look that small in your picture and I would agree I think it could be a for a down haul....The stick, no idea...

Yeah, those stanchion blocks look big enough for a 1/8 inch line for a downhaul or roller reefing line.

The stick I would also say looks like something you'd use to hold the outboard up.

Yeah, the pipe is just a mast crutch, hung on the rudder gudgeons. Here's a pic of the boat and the motor:






So is this how the dowel might have been used?

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

Looks like you figured the stick out. Are the normal bits that hold the motor up broken?

There doesn't seem to be any way to tilt it high enough to get the prop out of the water. Other than this stick, anyway.

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

Does the stick have imprints around it to show that it's been used thie way before? I would think that it does.

Regards,
Brad

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

Yea, look for some witness marks on the wood to give you some clues as to how it was used. I just figured it was a sex toy.
