Dinghy chock / mount / tie-down

Looking for a chock / mount / tie-down for my dinghy so it can sit on the floor of my fly bridge. Prefer something that is removable so the space can be utilized when the dinghy is in the water and no one will trip over. Thank you

Of course. They are for a boat. ;-)

The other thing I have contemplated is to build cradles out of Starboard. The concern is to come up with strong, easy and convenient way to remove them when we want to clear the boat deck.

BTW, Dan on Rebel ended up with a nice solution on his boat. Removable rails that slip into holes on the deck.

I started a thread about this several months back in the Dinghy section. I ended up making two chocks myself that are not attached to the deck in any way. I applied sheet rubber to the bottoms of them; when you set them down they don't move. Add the weight of the dink and strap it down and nothing moves.

Can you please share some pics and specifics of materials that you used and how you put together?

I was thinking of making something using foam, like discussed in this thread: [SOLD] For Sale: Dinghy Chocks - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

I did not like the idea of the foam sitting on the deck though so was back to the drawing board.

I would be fine adding tie-downs to the deck but would still want something low profile or removable. I would also be concerned that my dinghy and motor are not enough weight to keep them from sliding around in rough seas (my dinghy and motor are ~120 pounds total).

Thank you

Dinghy Cradle - Who Uses Them



Took a while to find it. I think Dan's rails are great. I'm looking for a versatile solution that will work for both my RIB and my hard shell dinghy, hence the Weaver Chocks.


OTOH, I could make up two different cradles. I'm just not sure how I could attach them securely to the deck yet also change them when I am changing dinghies.
