I am looking for some ideas on how to easily slide the lifting tackle used to lift
using one of the tubes on an arch. I have attached the lifting tackle to one of the horizontal pipes on the arch and I want to be able to slide the lifting tackle on the arch pipe. The lifting tackle is slid out to position over top of the outboard
and then slid back towards the boat
to lower the outboard on the bracket on the stern rail. I tried making a loop out of webbing, but once the weight of the engine
is on the webbing, it is difficult to slide the engine
. I tried waxing the pipe to make it slide more easily but it did not help much.
