The purpose of bow chocks is to provide a fair lead to the dock lines while minimizing chafe. Here is a low cost way to practically eliminate chafe at the bow: black pvc pipe. I cut two pieces about 24" long and cut a lengthwise slot in each. The slot was pushed down over the toe rails. A couple of zip ties keep the pvc pipes from sliding aft. The bow lines cannot slide off of the round chafe free pipes because they are trapped between the pulpit uprights.
