Well, er thanks. Not sure anyone is spot on yet. The boat started its life and was outfitted in Florida as a sport fisher. There are three of these whatever they ares, all in the cockpit. No one I have met on the west coast has seen anything like them. So I'm guessing its a Florida fishing thing? Here is a different angle pic.

To be honest, it actually looks like an outrigger mount, although the pin looks too far up.
Also, does it go straight down or at an angle? Most all gunnel mount outrigger mounts are at an angle.

Maybe the picture is deceiving........ how far down is that pin?

I would venture to say it is a tie down for something like this... maybe you can take a wider view pic of them all and where they are at? does the center T bar lift up out of it?

I think it's a tie down for a cockpit cover like you see people have at the dock on sport fishers.

    Thanks everybody. I don't know if we are getting closer to an answer. The cockpit is 15 by 8 and has a fairly large cover already. These are flat into the deck with no angle. Two are directly in line fore and aft, about 4 feet apart, the other one is almost to the wall on the port side.

    Maybe the previous owner had a cooler or two that he wanted secured on the cockpit. But, they are absolutely tie downs.
