What is this fitting for?

It's next to the thing I thread the jib lines through

Here's a picture.

And what is this for - it's on the outside of the traveler assembly

Here's a picture

Re: What is this fitting for?

The pics are so close I can't really see where they are on the boat, but my guess for picture 1 is that it's the base where a bimini frame connects to the boat.

Pic 2 is a jam cleat. Although it seems to be in a strange spot if it's right next to a part of the deck that slopes upwards.

I agree with both


If the jam cleat is "on the outside of the traveller assembly", I'd assume it is for locking a traveller control line and there should be a matching one on the other side.
