Outboard lifting is killing me!

I assume the engine is on your sailboat? I saw a picture of a neat way to do this. The owner fabricated a strap of stainless steel with a hook on one end that fit the dimensions of the lifting point on the engine. At the other end was a fitting that attached to a tackle arrangement that was in turn connected to the backstay. It worked so well his wife could do it. I''d est. the strap was 4" wide by 2'' long and 3/8" thick.

Good Luck!
