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

tdw 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.

CalebD Likely a main sheet traveler.

SlowButSteady It's a little difficult to tell from the pic, but your description sounds like an old school traveller.
