I bought this system for storing my 14.6' Old Town Canoe. Overall i am fairly satisfied.
The system was not over difficult to install. Threading the rope did take some time but managed to figure it out without too much trouble. only complaint is that the mounts have to run parallel to ceiling framing (typically perpendicular to the garage).
the system is fairly easy to use and allows me to load and unload easily with no help. The braking system allows one strap to be removed while holding the other in place. my only complaint is that there is no mechanical advantage so hoisting it can be a pain especially when tired. It also tends to hang low.
