I wonder if that's for photographing planets/stars. Long duration photos need to adjust for earth's rotation.

Harpoon seat. Put is out on the bow so you can pivot left/right to fire harpoon.

A lot of good suggestions. I might take a ride this week to pick it up and put on the basement bar. I’m hoping it really is a Pecker stretcher.

I think its a skeet thrower missing the thrower part. The arms sticking out on either side of the seat change the direction in which it turns. If you look they go to a switch on the motor.
