Boat jumble at our club today, came home with lots of good stuff along with nearly everything I had on offer...
However, I was really stumped to think of a practical use for this :

Anyone recognise it? Even the owner couldn't offer any suggestion.

It doesn't look at all boaty.

It looks like a multiple LNB holder for a satellite dish, to allow reception of more than one satellite from one dish.

Do the round brackets measure 40mm internal diameter? if so that pretty well confirms it.

The rectangular bracket mounts on the end of the LNB arm of the dish.

the thing is curved so as you move an LNB along it (to find the satellite) it remains a constant distance from the dish, i.e it remains at the focal point.

slide adjustable fishing rod holder? We had something like that (two) that the made up rods slotted into, mounted fore/aft under the after cockpit hard top ( back when we lived on a motor yacht)
