Got to agree with you about threading &tc. But if your chocks chew through the lines...What's the line from Airplane? "Shirley, there's got to be a better way!"

Im recommend lowering a heaving line over the bullwark, grabbing it through the closed chock, bending it on to the mooring line and then bringing the mooring line out, up, and over the bullwark. Seems easy to me, and less trouble than a boat hook.
