Hanging the Pro Angler 14 from the Ceiling

My PA 14 is an awesome fishing and diving platform. It also takes up way too much real-estate sitting on the floor in my garage. I have looked at winches and lifts, but settled on the 200lb Harken Hoister. I have the Hobie saddles for transporting the PA on my SUV. I mounted the saddles on 2 x 4s, rather than use the narrow webbing straps provided. The saddles are fastened with wingnuts, so I can quickly move them from the Hoister to my SUV.

So far so good. I was able to get the PA up high enough to clear the open garage door. I have literally less than 1" clearance from the garage front wall and 1/2" above the open garage door. So, it was a pain in the *** to make this happen, but now that it is out of the way I am happy.
