Could be.....or could be to haul a flag/pennant.....or the other thing I've seen was one of my neighbors with an O'day Jav. used an additional halyard to haul up small solar led landscape light as anchor light/ night time running light when tied up to his dock ( I was thinking of stealing that idea)…..
Mystery solved: looked back at the original ad, and there was mention of a topping lift having been installed
so, I guess I better take off the pirate flag and switch to its intended purpose.
Thank you all for reading!
