I think we're all referring to a "vacation" sort of getaway. It sounds like you need a vacation to the "sunbelt" too. Pent up anxiety? Life should be enjoyed so why not kid around a bit!...

Although they don't look very structural, they could have been used to lash the rudder when hove to. They certainly look like some sort of bimini or cover attach point as already pointed out.
