Please identiy this piece

Hello All
I recent salvaged the wreck of a vessel Seaway Agbamu ex Illustrious ex Seaway Rover IMO 6610039 . While breaking he up I found this metal piece …does anyone know what could it be ?

Can you provide some sort of a scale to the pictures?

It looks like a removable mount for some piece of portable equipment like a light or something.

Here are the dimensions in millimeter. The piece in made from brass as can be seen in the picture. It weighs about 2kg, the dark colour is probably as a result of carbon but I don’t think it was originally painted


I don’t so. This a metal. Brass

It almost looks like one of those old brackets welded to exterior bulkheads that would hold a navy all purpose nozzle vertically to “wash” off nuclear fallout.


Oh, yeah. I hadn’t even thought of that, but the measurements would be about right for holding the bail of a nozzle. Never saw a removable one like this before, but it’s a possibility.

gotta mention that this looks like some of the shittiest casting work I’ve yet to see…

That was my first thought

if it was for hanging a nozzel there may be some wear indication, especially on brass. get a magnifying glass and look see if there is any sign of wear via ships roll & pitching.
