Bman,
How much sailing have done on this boat ? If she is new to you then I'm thinking the othe rguys are correct and its a main sheet traveller, albeit a slightly odd looking one.

Re: hoop with pulley on the aft of my boat

It doesn't look stable enough! I would remove it and set something else up. And attach it properly.
It would be quite a mess if one end of that aft rail thing puled off. Then you loose control of the main...
There are different (and safer) ways to keep the main sheet on the end of the boom.
Good luck.

I'd guess the OP has either dealt with this or is using it as is.. but in any case he hasn't been around again since mid June 2011.. so I doubt he's listening

Your probably right.
Just hope it didn't rip off and hurt someone.
I should probably check the age of the threads.
