Mast bracket question

Catalina 27 Port Aransas
I have a Catalina 27. I only recently bought it. I just noticed that the mast has this attachment on it. I’m a little puzzled about what it is for. Any ideas?

I have it on my mast for use with a reaching pole.

Can you tell I’m a new owner?
Do not sweat the small stuff. Better to ask a question than to experiment too far beyond your comfort level. Somethings are forgiving, like lines, halyards, sails, fenders and such...

Somethings are less forgiving like drilling holes and keeping water outside of the boat. The latter is a critical issue.

Take the boat out and have some fun. As Capt Ron says...

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new dailboa6!!

Ask away. Another use is a safety harness tether clip-in point.
