Mystery line/rope found in locker


Arno Luijten
 

Dear Forum,
In one of our cockpit lockers of our A54 I found this line/rope. I knew it was in there but I still fail to come up with a sensible usage of this thing. It seems the previous owner used it frequently but for what I have no clue.
Anyone want to take a guess?

Regards,

It looks to me like a dinghy harness perhaps?  4 attachments to one all with soft shackles.

Hi Arno, 

Looks like a set of lines for hauling the dinghy just out of the water on a halyard. 

Soft shackles to the D rings on the tubes and then connected to the central soft shackle for the halyard. 

Best, 

Jim

Thanks all for the suggestion. This seems very plausible indeed. Regrettably the dinghy where this was intended for has died an ugly death and our current dinghy hangs happily from the new davids system I installed last year. So we will need to repurpose this. 

Thanks again.
