"But we have a boat," glancing his eye towards the launch that stood in the chocks or chucks.
When I got on the bridge at last the beggars were getting one of the boats off the chocks.
Their only other boat was a spare one, lashed amidships on chocks.
The schooner's spare boat was in chocks between the foremast and the main.
In all haste he pulled his clasp-knife and cut the lashings which held the boat in its chocks.
The boat needed just that impetus to free her from the chocks.
But the longboat sat high in its chocks; when it did float it might be too late.
Moreover, every boat was in its chocks or under its own davits.
With some labor he removed the chocks and managed to wheel the machine out.
It rested in chocks, on its keel, and was lashed to bolts in the deck.
