We've done the work for you! Normally, these sets of removable chocks and bases are sold separately, but must be purchased together. Fisheries has assembled them in kits, so you won't forget any components.
Universal Dinghy Chocks are designed for mounting hard bottom dinghies or inflatable hard bottom dinghies (RIBs) on the deck or bridge of a yacht.
These kits supply the chocks along with slide-in mounting bases which allow for removing and stowing the chocks when they are not in use. The low profile bases mount to the deck, and the stanchions slide in and lock, so you can remove them from your deck or bridge for safety, or if you want to use the area for other purposes.
Unlike the chocks sold for permanent deck mounting, the chocks included in these kits have been modified with a locking mechanism so they can be secured within the slide-in base.
These Standard tilting model chocks have stanchion pads that are mounted in a fixed yoke, so they only tilt in the up/down direction - to adjust to the angle of the dinghy bottom/hull.
With somewhat limited adjustability, these standard tilting pad chocks are typically selected when you can place the dinghy in nearly the same spot each time.
If you anticipate that the dinghy may sit in the chocks in various fore-aft positions on the hull, you should consider choosing the chock and base kits with swivelling pads - which have better adaptability to varying hull angles. See Related Products, below.
• Set of 4 handcrafted chocks plus mounting bases
• 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.
