Hi guys, I have a question. I got my boat used. There are two little plastic pieces mounted on the transom that I don't know what they do. Could someone knowledgeable please tell me? Please follow the link to see the picture I took. Thanks!

Do they have ridges inside? If so, they're clam cleats and might be used to secure your traveler lines on each side. But I didn't see a traveler in your picture. It's usually mounted on the top surface of the transom.
If no traveler, then they might be used for holding tight any number of types of line that go to the stern of the boat. You insert the line in the narrower end and pull it toward the wider end to secure it. Release it by lifting up.

Hi Christine,
thanks for your input. My main sheet traveler is mounted on the top surface of the transom. I don't think it is a clam cleat either.it doesn't have ridge on the inside. rather, it is like some type of slot. I am guessing maybe it is for a older or racing style traveler that comes with a bar that fits in the slots. I just don't know.

It could be for a tiller tamer, or a variation of a self tending tiller rig?
