Looking for Closed Chocks

Have been unsuccessful in finding a source for SST closed chocks. Would like to accomodate up to 1 in line. Does anyone out there have a source that they could refer me to? Many thanks in advance.

Don't think I've ever seen any for a yacht. Lots for work boats & ships (Panama Chocks) Do you need it to bolt do the deck or gunnel? Plenty of open style that'll work for that type of application.

Spartan Marine makes excellent bronze ones..have a look, you may like them. They have a latch so they can be opened if need be.

I've seen those Spartan chocks listed as "discontinued" by several retailers; however Spartan still shows them in their current on-line catalogue.

Spartan Marine Hardware Catalog

Check out the 2009 Price List, to confirm the one you want is still available:
VIEW 2008 PRICE LIST

BTW: I like their "Mid-Rail Chock" c/w inegral cleat.

Windline makes a ss chock which has a a pin which closes off the top,its a modern design so i dont know how it would look on your yawl.it is model#LC-1.we have them on my sons boat,they work fine but you need good chafe protection as they are fabricated from round bar but as you know,not many choices out there.

Many thanks for the suggestions.

The idea on the closed chocks was to mount one on each extreme stern quarter. The drogue bridle would then be lead through the chocks and forward to the main winches. This seems to be the ideal set up to minimize chaff and have some control of the downwind heading. Mounting them on the stern would prevent the bridle from chaffing on the rail. The closed chock would prevent the bridle from coming out in extreme conditions. Additionally, they could be used in case of rudder loss and for mooring in certain situations.

There are already 6 large closed chocks for dock lines but of course they are not in suitable positions and cannot be relocated.

At this point we may modify a pair of existing chock to suit the purpose unless anyone has a better idea on this topic.

This hardware is for a Mason 44 we have named Siskawit which we will sail to Scotland next summer.

Cracked the Code

If one searches on "closed fairlead" there are a number of available options. I think I can get what I need. Many thanks again for the suggestions.
