outboard crane on a PSC 34

Good morning all.

As all boats are a little different I am interested in purchasing an outboard motor lift for my Pacific Seacraft 34.
I want to be able to lift my 10 hp off the rail and drop down onto my dinghy.

Any PSC 34 owners have one of these to comment on?

I've looked at Kato Marine, Garhauer, Nova Lift and the St. Croix which all look to be good products. Just not sure if any of these will be more ideal than the other for my application. Perhaps one is better than the other in instances where I will be single handed.
The PSC obviously has the Teak caprail as well as the safety line stantions which I believe will be my mounting points (I believe). The removable option for stowage would of course be an added benny.

Also as I'm not down on the boat I'm wondering if any PSC owners know the diameter of the safety rails. I'm thinking 1 inch but just don't know.

Thanks!
Keith
