Why is there a bat on our boat?

Canal Boat - - Back Cabin -

QWe bought a boat last year and found some­thing on board, but we have no idea what it is! It’s like a base­ball bat but its end is square. Can you ad­vise please? Thanks! PAULCHES

ATONY REPLIES: Did this boat in­habit the North­ern wa­ter­ways? I think it may be the im­ple­ment that is used to open the pad­dles on the Calder & Heb­ble Nav­i­ga­tion. It’s called a hand spike.
