Destroy boats by not having them balanced on the two straps - boat tilts down, boats slides out of the pulleys, boat falls off to its demise :) And those were BIG power boats ....

I initially did a pulley system for my kayaks, but quickly removed it - too cumbersome to use and more hassle than help. My garage is low so I just hang the straps from the ceiling. I slide one end in the loop of one strap, then walk towards the other end supporting the boat in the air and then loop the other one. Or just drive under the boat with my car with rack on and lower or raise the boat - I got about 10" clearance and that is the easiest way.
