East coast UK. Mostly. Sometimes the Philippines
It’s a small grey painted bronze plate, about 50cms by 20 cms, with two screw holes either side of a raised centre section which is shaped like a truncated wedge with the wider end down. Used as a mounting bracket for the Minor Bracket Model and Sailing Grid compasses, which you stowed below when leaving the boat.

I know these are like hen’s teeth, but it’s possible that someone has been looking at one for years because their boat no longer has a Sestrel compass; if so, cash paid!
