Anybody use a PWC hoist to store their Hobie kayak? We live on a bay and the waterfront has a concrete wall. Not easy to launch and remove from the water. We have a stake dock that is about 2-1/2' to 3-1/2' above the water surface; the level varies with the seasons. It would be easy to paddle on to the PWC hoist, but I'm not sure if we could then get off the kayak onto the dock without some balancing issues...we're in our 60's and not as spry as we used to be. I don't think I could reach the lift wheel while still in the kayak. So if anybody has experience with using a hoist in this manner or if you have any suggestions, please advise.
