I have taken a pic of a metal rod next to the wheel. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks Patmetal rod

To repel boarders possibly – failing that, do you already have a graduated (gallons) wooden dipstick for your fuel tank?

Cheers-Roger. RP.

Hello Roger and thanks. I thought that too! Yes I have the wooden dipstick and my mysterious metal rod would be too short

I keep thinking – it must be a dipstick for something. Is it graduated at all?.

Do you have an auxiliary fuel tank under the cockpit port side locker that drains into the main fuel tank? Failing that, do you have a F. W. tank under the starb’d side locker?-R

On Voltair, we had a slightly odd-shaped cockpit table which fitted into the space in your photo. One had to remove the port side door down to the cabin in order to install it, but it was just the job for supporting the glasses and canapes as we all got warmed up before dinner.  The rod could be to lock a somewhat different table into place, perhaps.

Ours was a fairly late hull, so if yours is an early one, perhaps there was some development going on for this table during the period of production.

Thanks for your comments. Part of a table fixing seems to make sense to me
