Hi everyone. I just made a kayak hoist based on this design:
Also, similar to this one:
The rope is tied off in an anchor at the bow end, goes down to a pulley at the kayak, up to a pulley on the ceiling, over to a pulley by the stern section, down to a pulley at the kayak, and back up to a pulley to the free end of the rope for tie off.
When I pull the rope, the stern side comes up and the bow side drops. All the pulleys are free spinning, rope guides through them properly, etc. Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening? Thanks,
