I think there is one on both sides if my memory is upto scratch, it could be it protects the cord/pull that is connected to the self righting mechanism, if the boat flips over, you pull it and it activates the self righting mechansim. But that is a guess, I could be wrong.

Is just aguess but I reckon they are shock cords that are part of a bridle fitted at one end to the transom and the other end gets fitted with a tow line. The reson they are like that is for fast deployment.

IIRC, they hold a streaming line for capsized crew to hang off while the boat is righted...
