I was going to go with handles for a nesting set of cookware, but that "on/off" marking doesn't fit. Lots of things could be "open/close," but "on/off" is harder.

It was only when we got to Norfolk that we realized that ICW Mile 0 worked for both directions - coming south from there and going north from there! Two separate mileage counts!

My guess is they are off valves that have replacement handles. The ends would be useful to pry up floor panels or open some type of door or drawer.

Since they use 'on/off' vice 'open/shut' I would venture they might have been used in an electrical system? Some sort of removable breaker handle?

These are 90 degree angles though.

Would that not be Open/Closed.

If it helps they were in the drawer in the master head. I will be on the boat later today so will look to see what the valve looks like for the direct overboard.

I just Googled "on off boat valve handles" and there they were on the images page.

Until I quickly realized it was a photo link back to this thread!

I agree that deck plate keys make absolutely no sense. I've never seen Open/Close on a Deck plate and this clearly reads ON/OFF, which makes no sense for a deck plate.

On/Off would infer something with 'flow' like gas, electricity, water. As a shut-off valve, I see an inherent safety risk with any shut off that you need to dig around in drawers for. If you think about every fuel, seacock, or water shutoff and the lever is clearly well attached to the valve.

Do you have a holding tank through hull discharge? Some places require that it be locked. There are expensive electronic valves with keys. Some zip tie the seacock shut. Some remove the handle. Is this a 'portable' discharge seacock handle?

I don't believe this was cut and ground. Otherwise, that would be a machinist with skill, because that edge is PERFECT.

They are a training aid for newbies on how to turn valves on or off. Can't you see the wrist action forming a muscle memory.

I had originally reached the very same conclusion but the graphics on the handle don't support the correct direction for opening & closing.

I did a Bing reverse image search on the graphic and didnít get anything, but it looks like a road and a couple of trees. I donít think itís boat-related.

Well I took them back down to the boat and looked around but couldn't come up with anything.

So I put them back in the master head drawer!

Oh now that makes sense when you mention the head.
If you have a macerating head and remove the plastic motor cover you should see a slot in the motor shaft. If it ever jams / clogs one can usually free it up with a right angle screw driver... which I'll bet the PO made up for that task. See if it doesn't fit the slot pretty well.
I'm also guessing these were made up from an unused ball valve handle and the reason for the markings.
I also searched the logo image but didn't find anything close.
Is there a prize for the correct answer?
