    Mystery parts on new inflatable boat-gctid378414

    I just bought a Newport Vessels inflatable boat. I've got it inflated it and everything looks good so far, but it came with some metal parts that I have no idea what they are for. See attached picture. Does anyone know what to do with these parts?

    Do you have a set, or just what's in the picture?

    My guess - it's for holding the oars when you paddle?

    Does it look like the sides of the inflatable have "positions" where this hardware would mount close to where the oars would extend over the sides?

      Didn't you see 'back to the future'??? It's a Flux Capacitor, silly

      Sorry, no idea, just too much sun, exhausted and a little stupid

        It's only the parts you see in the picture. The cylinder fits into the well shaped piece and the square piece on top of that, but that still doesn't make any more sense. I have emailed Newport Vessels and asked, but haven't heard back yet.

          OK, I have figured out what it is, it's a 3-position detent kit for hydraulic valves. Made by Prince Mfg. Co. Now I would like to know how it ended up with my made in China inflatable boat...http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.as...&item=9-4895-D
