Bristol, RI 

I'm not sure what this.  It's sitting on the bow of a boat and I would bet it must have a colorful, nautical name.  I'll have to do some research.


  1. Is this a bow shackle for holding a jib sail? Perhaps there is a more technical term for it? Great photo.

  2. Thanks! I think you're right. I'm sure it must hold some part of the sail, but not having sailed all that much, I'm not sure of the proper term. If I find out, I'll be sure to post about it. Thanks again.

  3. Very nice bokeh. The "not sure what it is" looks a little bit like a Jugendstil sculpture or ornament.
