I have found the answer thanks to Toga-Dan's lead. This is a Barrel reamer used to smooth and compact a hole after is has been reamed with a boring tool.

Have you cut it open? Be interesting to see the insides.

I really doubt it's ordinance; those welds are decent, but still look like "farm quality" welds...

well, here's to hoping its not some sort of unexplored ordnance like a depth charge. Also, what are the salvage laws for finding treasure in the waters there if it has any value?

first thought, like caitlinsdad : it might blow up on ya.

Second thought. It's a snake head for clearing out pipes, but it cuts and clears while being pulled, not pushed.
