It looks like brick and water to me.  Something to do with boilers perhaps?

I was thinking it might be inside a furnace, refractory bricks maybe?

It is a water boiler, In fact the inside of one of HMS Belfast's 3 drum Admiralty pattern boilers.

Well, that'll teach me, won't it? Probably not.



Here's one I've cropped from the holiday archives.  You might guess that from the hint of blue, it's not here in Blighty; no points for that though.

Nick,
Maybe too much 'sky' for that, and also possibly to heavy rake. Bit too much metal for radar, so, this leaves aerofoil, but the leading edge is a tad blunt!

Sorry Derek, there may simply be no hope for you  {-)

Polaris, you're probably as close as this'll get without getting messy.  Anyway, I don't know the technical name for the part in question...fraud that I am  :embarrassed:



The "part" was an upright on this masty type thing on this American boat type thing:

Dear Rmaddock, Whilst it is not strictly an aerofoil, it is indeed as near good as one! :-) - although it doesn't really function as such! %%  So, I get the go by a touch of default maybe... in return, I will go away and find something easy!!! :}  Regards, Bernard
