Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

Make the holes. use through bolts with fender washers on the bottom and if you want to cut the bolts just the right length, use round headed nuts on the bottom. (May spare you scalping some skin) The bolt rope is still going to be a problem. I single hand my Oday30 it takes about a minute to raise the main.
