deck fittings on old Searider

Got a refurbed ex-MOD SR5.4 hull that is believed to be about 25 years old. Ahead of the console in the bow are some strange shapes glassed into the deck that I can't tell if they are original or customised. Firstly there is a raised square piece that I guess could be used for a heavy duty stanchion post, and secondly there is a raised triangular piece with the thick spine running down the centre line (it looks a bit like the shank and fluke from a Danforth anchor).

Has anyone got any ideas what these were used for, and what structural damage I could do if I remove and reglass?
