I'm thinking about a pulley system to raise the boat to the ceiling. That way I could back my car into the garage and lower it right onto my kayak saddles.

The hooks on the wall may be my best option, though.

Well done Adrian.

...I know there's a pulley system that sells for around $50...
That's a bit much! A few years ago I went to Home Depot and got...
2 screw hooks, 4 pulleys, 2 quick ring clips, 1 cleat, and some 550 cord and made my own hoyst/pulley system.
The boat's out of the way but easy to get to for a fast getaway.
As my collection grew, so too did the number of hoysts.

Make it easy to get to so there are "no excuses" next time you get the urge to make a splash!

I think Adrian's got the best set up I've seen, KISS.

Mine hangs off two J- hooks from the ceiling, I just run the cam'ed tie down straps over the hooks & around the boat and adjuts it as I pull the pag end.

Pulleys are too complex a machine for a simple minded simian like me.

Adrian's garage is SOOOO CLEAN

Mine's in a barn in another state - I probably couldn't get to it in my garage right now anyway (At some point I'll rig the pulleys for home )

Reading about suspension systems in webpages suggests the thing be done like Adrian did it, or supported from the bottom if hung.
