I have an auto repair shop, why not make use of my equipment.....



This will make painting the bottom easier



And will allow me to sand blast and repaint the keel

I love the idea and it sure would make maintenance easier, but I would recommend you purchase some actual nylon lifting slings. They would be about three or four inches wide, which would spread the load over a wider ares, and there would be no worries of exceeding the load rating. I worry about the poly rope. Something as simple as a misdirected heat gun could cause the whole thing to come crashing down in a second.

I'm curious, what's holding up the boat, besides the poly rope and metal table?
There is a metal table in back as well. These are alignment stands and are good for 2500# each. I estimate the boat to be 1500# as it sits.

It should only be there for 2 or 3 days tops.

I too would prefer to see straps rather than a single pass of poly rope, but no reason that the hoist can't do that job, within it's load restraints and dimensions!

... now to find a shop hoist that can handle 12,000 lbs, 35 feet length and 6 foot draft :rolleyes: ;)
