Are both holes threaded? If so I say mounts for accessories. Oars or rod holders?
Just a guess.

Not valves in the wrong place facing up usually inside of tube next to inflation valve as pagick says for an accessory would be my guess too

I’ve always though they were for a cover over the console, Are they called Bimini tops/covers?

Bimini top mounts have screws forward/aft not port starboard. And only need one mount each side.
Iím betting rod holders.
Better take up fishing!

Thank you for the responses

There is no thread in any of the holes. The two holes in each 'thing' are only about 2mm wide and dont look as if they could support much. Will upload a clear shot looking down at them

Shame was hoping they were valves, damm it

Fishing is only good with a spear and flippers, maybe a rod holder could be adapted to hold a can of ale!?

Looking at the manual there is no mention of them in the boat schematic. Everything else is covered bar these annoyingly. Makes me think there possibly after market ?

Anyhow heres some more snaps

the plot thickens

Not what I expected to see close up. Looks like my guess is wrong.

I dont think so. Believe there are three baffles to my boat and its possible that these things cover the aft and middle baffle but not froward. Im baffled!
