Joe ... For what it is worth, my chocks were attached to the stem fitting with
machine screws. I believe they were about 10/24's  (the threaded holes still
remain in the stem fitting)  I might suggest trying to drill the heads off of
the screws and then prying the chocks off of the screw shanks and then trying
to remove the screw shanks with a pair of vice grip pliers. If you are unable
to remove the shanks just cut them off flush with the stem fitting. Remember
when drilling stainless steal use a good bit, slow speed and steady pressure.
I would also suggest you center punch the center of the screw head so you can
stay in the middle so you won't really need a bit any larger than the shank of
the screw.
    I personally believe you would be better off with the bowsprit down on the
top of the stem fitting. This is only my opinion, but "you asked for it"
