A couple of points,
The mast gate on the Wayfarer is longer than the movement the mast will move because of the mast pin.

This must not have any weight on it as it will damage the mast and tabernacle.

So the first chocks are needed to stop the mast going any further forward at deck and pin level when, you have the desired pre bend

Then when you add more chocks in front of the mast it will push the mast aft and straighter till the pin then binds again.
