Re: What Are These Parts?

No real idea, but the larger pair which look like teak (teak tends to be used on deck as it weathers well with little maintainence) and to my eye are some sort of DIY (bespoke?!) arrangement for hanging an inflatable dinghy off the transom / pushpit.......which kinda rules them out as having anything "historical" about them .

Apart from that, a thread bump is the best I can do!

Re: What Are These Parts?

The two pieces with the holes might be pinrails, used to hold belaying pins

Re: What Are These Parts?

I think those curvy pieces might be to hang lifebuoys. There seem to be spaces on what would be the vertical part to pass rope or webbing lashings through. I think a lifebuoy more likely than an inflatable

Re: What Are These Parts?

Re: What Are These Parts?

Could they be ladder hardware? Thought I saw something similar the other day.

Thanks Skipper, I have been down with a pinched nerve and will send you their measurements the first of the week.

We have a small marine store in Carrabelle, FL and they came to us with some other marine rigging that appears to be older. The person who sent them to us found them in his Grandfathers garage and some of the included blocks are older wood with brass centers. All the hardware attached is stainless.

That was my first thought as well but the space on the other end is rectangular in shape and I can't figure it's attachment. Someone said they had seen something like this on an older small tanker holding pipes.

In that case, my stab in the dark is the "L" shaped units might be brackets for an over-head gravity feed alcohol tank for a stove. The other brackets could be anything.

Re: What Are These Parts?

The two smaller appear to be pin rails. The two larger appear to be guides to hold and attach a small boat to the deck. I remember very similar on an old schooner I crewed on many many years ago. Smaller hole used to tie down the dink and larger as a handhold. I remember it so well because I think I tripped over it twice.

Re: What Are These Parts?

The larger, L-shaped pieces: homemade brackets to suspend an inflatable dinghy from the pushpit or transom, perhaps?

I agree that the other two may be pinrails.
