It is raining in Montego Bay today.  We are experiencing a cold front, the tail end of the weather that was terrorizing the land north of us.  I don't mind the rain most of the time, except that with a northern, as these storms are called here, we get swells in the harbour that rock our boat from side to side.  A good day to stay in bed.

The Captain and Crew have been keeping themselves busy with boat jobs and other miscellany.  One such item showed up in the bottom of a drawer in the galley.

"What is it?" you ask.
Unfortunately, another angle doesn't help much.
In case you don't already know, when the Captain aquired "Diva," she came fully furnished.  The previous owner left everything on board, leaving us the happy owners of full sets of charts, cruising guides and kitchen crockery of all kinds.

It also means that occasionally items pop up that have never been seen before, including the item above.  Post your guesses in the the comments section if you like.  (Those of you who were guests of a recent full moon sail where the purpose of our object of curiosity was revealed, don't spoil the fun.)

P.S. Plans have changed, as they are wont to do when sailors are involved.  It looks like we will be parked in Montego Bay longer than expected.  Want to come visit, anyone?

    1. Clever man! Of course it is. And, courtesy of my Dad, here's the exact name: Universal opener from Brabantia in Sweden. You can google it and get yourself one. Coincidentally, we used it last night to open a jar of pickles and it worked perfectly.
