Where did you hear that? They used grappling hooks to pull and tethered ships. Its not like Age of Sail ships used a corvus device, but boarding was still common.

You don't board from the front of the ship??? You grapple it and pull it side by side. People weren't hopping over the bow.

The corvus was unique because you could ram, stun the crew, drop the corvus and charge.
