I recently acquired a sailboat and noticed a small protrusion under the starboard side of the hull in front of the keel. Does anyone know what this is?
The boat is a 1976 hunter 25. I have not put it in the water yet. The head is about directly above in the cabin. The toilet was replaced prior to me acquiring the boat so there is a porta toilet there now, no plumbing.
The hull is fiberglass. The top part looks as if it's wood, and the bottom I can't really tell. There is only one of those protrusions.
Here are some pictures:
