    Anyone know what this is for?

    Came with the spare parts on my E25, along with what seems like a wooden cover plate (not pictured) that doesn't really fit (same wood, same finish, same size though). I do know that toilet paper does go in the stainless steel bracket, but what about inside? What originally what this used for and where on the boat would it have been mounted? Thanks!

    Radio

    The stainless bracket looks like one used to hold a VHF radio given the multiple holes arranged in an arc. Maybe?

    Installation was on deck, by weathered appearance. Probably cockpit. Maybe.

    I was thinking it might be the opposite way around. it looks to me like it might be a box for an instrument (e.g., a depth readout or something), with a mounting bracket that allows it to pivot out of the way when not needed. Some people have, for example, mounted a radar display on a pivoting mount so that it swings out into view in the companionway when in use, and back behind the bulkhead when not needed.

    Whatever it is, I don't think it is OEM.

    Fastener scars

    Any other fastener scars that might give a clue as to where it was mounted. May have been a piece that the PO picked up from somewhere else with the intent of using it and never did.
