Re: Boat Hoist Opinions
I agree with the idea of buying your own blocks and line. I don't have photographs. My current set up has blocks on straps through holes in rafters in my garage. The rafters I picked are farther apart than the length of the boat so that hoisting lines come up at a slight angle. The blocks on the rafters are double blocks. The line is tied off at the double block and then runs down to a single block with a hook on it. I hook that block to the boat. The line goes back up and through the second pulley on the double block and then to my hand. I pull the boat up to the ceiling joists and cleat it off. I then put ropes or straps around the body of the boat to take the weight.
It's a good set up because I can lower my Batto onto the cart and vice versa
