Default Name This Accessory?

I have about 6 or 7 of these screwed in around random locations in the cockpit. I think it might be some kind of mount where you can hang a drink holder or something, but I can't find any drink holders with a matching part. The item is circled in the attached picture. Not the best picture but I'll see if I have more. Anyone know what these are?

You're pretty far from the object in the first picture. The object in the first picture looks like a hand hold. The second picture has nothing circled.

The white hook in the center of the second picture is a holder for a life ring (throwable PFD ring).

It's the black thing behind the hand hold in the first pic. Attached the second pic with the objects circled. Forgot to take a closeup of one over the weekend and now the boat is 2 hours away. Will try to remember this weekend. Click on the pic and you can kind of see them a little better ... they are each held on with 2 phillips screws, and there's a pocket on the lower left. Some have little rubber nubs in them above the pocket, and some don't

Funny you mentioned that life ring holder; I've removed it since the pic was taken ... always got in the way when opening the stb engine hatch, plus it snagged / tore the edging off my cockpit cover.

I finally remembered to get a picture of these up close ... anyone know what it is? The little atom button is squishy rubber.

Perhaps poles/frames for a bimini slide/snap into them?

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner: the original owner is a friend of my dad's, so I got his number and texted the pics to him. Turns out my initial guess was correct, they are indeed mounts for swiveling self-leveling cup holders. I still can't find any cup holders sold today that use those as a base, but I guess I'll just leave them there since they each would leave 2 empty screw holes.

The holes can be filled. Sometimes, I'll just remove the item, compound and wax the area, then reinstall the screws only with some 3m 4000 caulk. A few random screws look better than aging mounts with no actual function.
