It's a penny shakers! I have one, too. You fill it half way with pennies, then lash it to your bowsprit and go out sailing on a beat into heavy oncoming seas. This way the pennys get shaken, and water can come in (every time your dip your bowsprit) to keep them lubricated. They were originally designed to keep land sharks from following too closely in one's wake. You can "close it" to keep water in while moving the pennies for short-term scratch prevention.



Cheers,
Aaron N.
