Re: Thing attached to overhead

Err... it's a egg holder for your boiled breakfast eggs. Of course it is only used when you have capsized, but even upside down there is no excuse for not eating "proper".

Del beat me to the next question... Any indication on the sole??? Anything Straight below??? Looks like it's directly centerline...

I suppose a stripper pole is too much to hope for ...

Lol I thought the same thing but the top part is soft. Would not want a stripper flying off on a spin now. That could hurt. I can picture it now one leg over the head starts to spin and ting.... shes in the v-bitrh with a clang of the pole.....

I s there any holes or mounts on the floor or under the panels if theres storage underneath?

Re: Thing attached to overhead

Nope, not on the center-line. The wooden pole you see to the right is on the center-line. The only thing below it is the counter top. Here's a better picture showing its position.

Theoretically possible. The boat did come with a different kind of oil lamp hanger over the salon table, as you can see in the picture.

Re: Thing attached to overhead

This makes me realize that when I sell my boat I am going to leave or add some random piece of substantially sized hardware that looks really important just to make people wonder what the hell is that for even though it does nothing.

Re: Thing attached to overhead

That is one superb looking interior. I have no more idea of what it is/was than anyone else. I do notice that the teak block it is mounted on is substantially thicker than the one for the overhead light in the background. Significant?

My vote too, Is the black piece on the bottom removable by unscrewing it leaving a threaded shaft?

It seems like it should be removable, but I can only unscrew it so far and it stops. I didn't try and force it.
