I need a deal on a canoe to make this hot (and even then, I'm not much for canoeing - but at least I could store it!)

fwhobbes said: Aren't these < $20 on Amazon? Typical bicycle hoists have a lower weight rating and they don't come with straps.
That said, I used the $5.99 ones from H@rbor Freight (price at the time) with some spare tie downs to store my 60# kayaks. Never had a problem.

$7.99 now but I can't imagine they won't hold 100 lbs. $25 is a rip-off IMHO (These suck anyway....the ropes pull off the pulleys too easily necessitating getting out the ladder and climbing up there to straighten out the mess).
$18.99...but not shipped by Amazon so the shipping is $8+ and brings the total price to $26.99

I can't speak for this particular brand of canoe hoist, but I have one that is very similar which has been in use for over 9 years. It holds 145 pounds and was sold by CityStop on eBay for a LOT more than this one. It also snugs up closer to the roof. In any case, it is still working well and we have done nothing other than spray a little silicone on the moving parts every couple of years. Our canoe is wood and weighs about 80 pounds. IF this one is similar and the canoe won't hang down too low, $25 is definitely a good deal.
