...... of equal size (ratio) , sounds correct to me .

I've not had a need to lift a canoe/kayak to a ceiling myself , but that's an good way to do it all right .

So you guys , using the compound system ... how's the pull weight feel , pretty easy ??

Pretty certain the O.P.'s original design would work fine also if he could figure out the wheel ratios so the bow and stern would lift equally . Smaller and larger pulley wheels .
