What is This?

Hi Guys,

When I took delivery of my boat, there were two of these on board. They are about 50cm long (20in). 3 years later, I've been over every cm and can't, for the life of me, find anything this may fit.

Can anybody suggest what this thingy my be - and how much worse off I would be without one?

TIA

Steve

Pot restraints for holding pots and pans on your stove.

Looks like the manual pump handle for a Katadyn 40 watermaker.

I thought that was why they make winch handles out of heavy bronze?

Ah, the watermaker. The boat arrived with that beastie but I took it off 'cos it didn't look in too good a condition and I wanted the space for other stuff. It's bagged up in the garage - soon to be joined by this fish-basher thanks to you good people.

Thanks for all the suggestions - even the weird ones

Steve
