Hey stranger!
Picture absence makes guessing a wee bit vague; but carry on.
It certainly could be related.

Is this from your cannon patch with scattered cannon balls? Remember now how you had found a site with multiple cannons showing.

it's quite straight across the top vs a nice curve each side.
IF metal was flattened and then rolled to for a hollow route each side it could be a linstock.
[In 1745, the British began using gunlocks, which were flintlock mechanisms fitted to cannons. Unlike the linstock, gunlocks allowed for more precise firing without the delay.]

Ships did carry augers for making holes in wood though. A more likely profile from the picture anyways.

Great to have you on here again Kevin! :coffee2: Curious if you ever finished exploring that reef or bank, whatever they call it in the Bahamas? Don't remember for sure what was down there, for some reason, keep thinking it had a sunken sub.

Ok, I think that was the story.... drifting/wind current, that could be a real problem. That's right, pirates were over there and would be nice to find a cave they used.
