Default Gravity readings during boil...

Can you take gravity readings at points during the boil?!?

You can. That's why a refractometer is handy. Generally in AG brewing we take a pre and post boil reading, because we usually know our boiloff rate. But you can take readings and boil til you get to your intended gravity.
