Re: What part is this?

They look like some kind of thrust washer. Washers for the bobbin winder clutch on a sewing machine??? Not exactly like clutch washer I have seen so just a guess. Any hint on a sewing machine make?

No sewing machine on board. They were in the forepeak with many assorted hardware items.

Re: What part is this?

Our boat had a stearns furler which has been disabled. Does that fit the furler washer theory?

Re: What part is this?

I like the furler part idea and am impressed that someone came up with that. If that turns out not to be true, my first impression is that it is a rivet-on cringle for sail repair. Especially since it was found with sewing supplies. Another detail that my support this idea is that on the parts diagram, there appears to be a raised ring (pilot?) on part #16 that isn't present in your photos.

Re: What part is this?

That was quick Happy. You beat Gord May on this one. Don't think I've ever seen that happen. Gord must not have been near his computer for a couple minutes.
At any rate, your inspiration must have come from a good Mai Tai.

Re: What part is this?

Rivet sail repair wins!!! There were several rivets in or near as well.

So.....is it worth keeping?
