Universal Dinghy Chocks are designed for mounting hard bottom dinghies or inflatable hard bottom dinghies (RIBs) on the deck or bridge of a yacht. They can be permanently mounted, or we offer the option to purchase them with slide-in bases - which allow for removing and stowing the chocks when they are not in use. See Related Products, below.
Note - if you want the removability option, you must purchase the chocks and bases at the same time, since the chocks' stanchions need to be modified with a locking mechanism for the base. The kits we offer is a very convenient way to do this.
This Swivel model chock has stanchion pads that are attached to a rotating bolt with an articulating yoke - so the pads can rotate and swivel in any direction to adjust to the angle of the dinghy bottom/hull.
These swiveling pads are ideal for installations where the dinghy might be placed in the chocks in slightly different fore-aft positions each time, since they can easily adapt to varying hull angles.
• Set of 4 handcrafted chocks
• Easy to install, only takes a few minutes
• Made from 100% marine grade 304 stainless steel
• Thick hypalon rubber pads on stanchions
• Stanchion footprint is 5" x 6-7/8"
• Capacity is the total weight of the dinghy, including motor; larger pads better distribute the pad's pressure on the hulls of heavier dinghies
Chocks with larger pads are offered in more than one height to allow for large deck curvature, deeply veed hulls, clearing hatches or other obstructions, or to allow for larger dinghy engines.
Additionally, Swivel Chocks have the option of adding extra-long rotating Spacer Bolts (in four lengths up to 4") to extend the height of one or several pads — especially useful when the dinghy is mounted on a deck with a large slope; sold separately. See Related Products, below.
