This needs to be able to swing inboard. That also rules out the one over the bow suggested.
Also doesn't need to be super heavy duty.
Was thinking dive kit kind of weight rather than diver kind of weight.
I'd be interested in seeing any plans you made Nasher!
So an A frame that pivots out over the bow / tube would be good, acting as a deviation point more than anything else.
This could then be connected to a winch some where in line, if in the bow on the front of the console perhaps?
Once the load is lifted to the height required the a frame moves on it's allowed axis from pointing out over to at 45 degrees to vertical, bringing the load in, then lower the winch.
Stops / brackets at the 45 and 90 would be required but shouldn't be too hard if the max weight is a twin set.
