    Just an wild idea I want to jot down before it's gone. I thought this should be efficient with the strength/weight. Though maybe challenging to build.

    The hoist rails are cable-stayed, and accommodates up to 16m beam. And with 6m extended bow direction & stern direction for hoisting lighter sailboats that need to clear total draft (air & water) over 20m.

    Welcome your comments.

    It looks very complicated.
    What are (in your opinion) the perceived advantages over a 'conventional' Travel Lift?

    Other than the strength/weight, also thought directional stability should be better. Conventional boxy types usually weaker on least one lateral direction. The curves and the interconnected supports probably also absorb vibrations/oscillation better.
