What is this thing called?

It is a recessed pocket that holds the "ball" end of a tiller extension handle. It can be used to hold the tiller stationary when one leaves the helm to raise/lower sails.

Many thanks!

That looks like a Forespar tiller extension lock box.

Yes, I've always thought brevity was a virtue.
