This is a Marine Inclinometer, which measures the heel of the hull of a boat under sail or power, measuring how much the hull is 'leaning' to port or starboard. Unknown country of origin, however i acquired it off of a 1950's Cheoy Lee Ketch with the extreme displeasure of having to salvage the boat as it was damaged far beyond any reasonable expectation of repair. It hangs on the wall in my nautical themed "boat cave". Not crazy about parting with it, however have plenty of other items to rotate in to it's wall space.
If You absolutely, positively have to have one of these either for Your sail or power vessel, or Your nautically themed bar, lounge or man cave...I can relate.
While these are an incredibly old instrument in design, they are incredibly important to the Captain, 1st Mate, Helmsman, and Engineer as Oil and other lubricants, gear stored below decks, crew members, ballast and securing of cargo in holds, etc. ALL require accurate information about at what angle(s) the vessel is moving between versus perfectly 'vertical'. These inclinometers provide an instant visual reading of that/those angle(s).
This one is 7.25" tall and 7.75" wide, with mounting points at the top and both sides.
