We agree totally. All I said is that the hoist as originally built can function IF you keep the boat level by hand or allow it to level itself at the full-up or full-down positions. I myself wouldn't want that system since nothing can be done to it "as is" to solve the teeter-totter problem (the number of pulleys operating on each end pretty-much guarantees which way the teeter-totter will tip when you try to lift the thing, that's all, but it's still "out of control" no matter what). The system you and Grayhawk describe is far better, and a practical solution.
