    Can you show another photograph of this. It is not clearly visible and its too difficult to recognize this.

    Are we supposing its related to boating? It is obviously has the clamp incorporated. But where it goes is a mystery for sure. Is the peglike object removable?

    Actually it is lying on its side. If you put it in the proper orientation it may be easier to identify - wheel up and screw handle down. AH! there it is... it is a portable (or perhaps perminent) dock roller. It can be attached to a dock side (best used on a corner) to allow a heavier boat to dock without gouging the side. The boat will simply contact the roller, compress it a little to absorb a bit of the energy and then roll along the dock without damaging the boat. Very useful with heavy boats. I once had a boat of just over 20 tons that was fun to get into a slip. I had to come down a narrow channel with slips on both sides. To dock I had to make a 90 degree turn and the wind was always strong abeam as I lined up with the slip. Without rollers the dock would have had a bite of my fiberglass every time I came or went from my slip. Thank God for these devices.

    If that is not the correct answer then I don't have a clue....
