You are looking at a Large Base Stainless Steel Cross Ballard . This was salvaged from a once working vessel that was being torn apart for scrapes.
Dock Cleats are used to secure vessels to docks. Ideally, all cleats should be sturdy, resistant to any corrosion and should be installed on the dock frame rather the just the deck itself.
You will see some surface wear on it but overall in good condition. The bottom part on this cleat is solid and has four mounting holes.
This cleat is still perfect for its original purpose, securing vessels, but it would also make great coastal or nautical decoration. You could even use it on a mantle for a stocking holder!
Cross Bar: 6″ long and 3.4″ in diameter
Top: 3″ in diameter
Base: 6″ wide by 4.34″ long
Weight: 2 lbs.
