Re: Help Identify This Hardware's Purpose

The two holes may have been for nothing more than for speakers?

Picture 1, on my cutter, is a dc outlet for an Autohelm 3000.

Re: Help Identify This Hardware's Purpose

Concerning the holes from the missing compass/instruments...

I removed a broken bulkhead mounted compass in the cockpit on one of my boats, and had a similar hole left over. I bought a deck access plate. They come in all sizes, and was a breeze to install. The ugly hole was replaced with a nice looking cover, with a removable plate as an added bonus. My kids enjoyed this "hole" to below. They would pass things back and forth, or "peek" through it. It made for some added ventilation on hot days, or when cooking. In general, it was a super low cost solution that turned out great.

They might be called access plates, or deck ports, or something similar. They come in a variety of sizes, most likely one to fit your hole exactly.

By having it near the campanionway, he could likely clip on while still below, then climb up and access the entire cockpit without having to move his tether clip. However, I'd make sure there was a solid backing plate on there before trusting my life to it.

Jim
I agree. There also seems to be the remains of another one, for the helmsman, above the cockpit drain.
