Can you identify this feature? 19th century 1st Rates

Recommended Posts

All the photos I've seen show her at anchor, not moored to a buoy. But it does look very much like an early mooring fairlead. Might have doubled up for taking in the end of the anchor chain whilst at sea, if they wanted to disconnect it from the bower anchors.


Thanks for your input everyone! I think my model of this beast is still some way off yet, but looking forward to it :)
