DIY davit or lift?

I know there's some very nice davits available in the $500 to $1500 range. I could just buy one...but I enjoy the satisfaction of making things and saving some money in the process.

Has anyone ever built their own davit or lifting device (using a block and tackle sort of arrangement) to raise/lower things in and out of a dinghy? My need is fairly simple...raise and lower about 75 lbs. safely and with relative ease.
