When you pull the boat up as high as it will go, what is the distance from the ceiling to the bottom of the lower pulley bracket, excluding the hook part?
From the pictures, it looks to be about 8"...
If you pull it all the way up where the pulley goes into the ceiling-mounted bracket, leaving zero slack in the rope (not easy to get it up that tight if it's got some weight on it), the bottom of the hooks are exactly 12 inches from the ceiling.
Realistically, I'd expect to target a 15 inch addition to whatever you're hoisting -- especially if you're looking to get it above a garage door and you'd like that garage door to open again. Anything less and you're really going to have to pull hard on the rope and really put quite a strain on this hoising system.
