    I’d recognize those fingerprints anywhere.

    My eyes are getting old, I cannot see fingerprints, I just see a left hand holding an unknown object.

    Never seen that before but it makes me think of a hanging utensil hook that hangs on a gallery grab rail. Maybe over a gimbled stove.
    The other thing was a piece of commercial fishing hardware for hanging netting.
    But, I'll go with the galley hardware.

    Tie-off?

    Because it's nicely engraved, I'm betting it's a nautical bit of jewelry--a necklace pendant hung from a chain through the ring....something you might find in a boat show booth.

    It’s clearly not toilet-related. Unless he found it in the holding tank.

    Not too far off, I'd say. Looks like a belt buckle for a rope belt. The anchor would fit through a loop, the circle would have the belt tied to it.

    It's nicely welded, that's for sure. The "nautical bit of jewelry" dovetails nicely with @Ron20324 and his belt buckle idea.

    Found it in a very heavy satchel filled with rigging such as turnbuckle parts, anchor swivels and blocks of all shapes and sizes. I'll look for the photo later.
    I've relocated the satchel to a starboard hold to take the port list outta the boat. :thumbup:

    One of a few things...
    1) Coat hanger for @Kermit pirate outfit.
    2) Beer tab puller
    3) Wet bikini hanger

    Most likely...
    Use as an anti rope burn by wearing as a ring and letting the free line guide through your hand.
