      Had some nice old boat blocks, but not like this.

      Yhup..I inherited a ranch with house an barn built in 1896... near the Pacific Ocean ...There's stories of the family jumping in wagons for short trip to beach when tall masts could be seen or they heard distress cannons...think this might have washed up or salvaged from beach wreck..in all my searching( I've had for 5 years now)..never saw anything like it
