What is it?

Bought a new (used) Beneteau Flyer boat and found a few of these in a draw, not sure what it is, and no results on google, any ideas?

I could use a few dealing with Beneteau in France, almost all documentation is in french, PO moved the boat from Europe to USA.

Slowly, that's s-l-o-w-l-y getting English versions of requested operating instructions, etc.

Does the Flyer have an outboard or outdrive? It could be a safety lock pin.

Failing that, if the PO was a bicycle enthusiast it could be a tool from an
Argel Sumulong fixed gear bicycle frame...

It is a (position) retaining pin.
Now, you need to find the ‘where’ and which position (open or closed) it is meant to maintain.

If there are 4 on board it must be for a reason. Any means of contacting the PO?

It looks like a lock release pin. Think of a bathroom door lock set. When you go in and close the door, there's a button on the door knob to lock the door. When you turn the knob from the inside, the lockset opens. When a child locks themselves in the bathroom, the knob on the outside has a hole in the center that you can insert a pin (such as the one in the OP) to unlock the door.

It's probably not for the head door, but maybe opens some kind of lock release.

They are not for anything on the boat, so quit worrying. They are part of an item the previous owner removed and took home. Now HE is going nutz wondering where he put the 4 yellow plunkets.

Is ATF away? Surely he and his prime mates have the answer.
