My wife, and kids, and I have recently discovered the Hobie Mirage line of kayaks. We purchased an Outback and a Sport. We also purchased a Sports Hoist System from REI that has a weight capacity of 200 lbs. This weekend we installed the hoist system on our dock. The straps supplied with the hoist don't work well around the hull of the kayaks. What DOES work well, is atached the hoist hooks to the carrying handle on the front and rear of the kayaks. Is this point strong enough to hold the kayaks ? If not, has anyone mounted an attaching point suitable for a hoist ? and hpw would you recommend doing it ? Any and all input is appreciated.
