Wanting to use a pulley system to raise/lower my portable fish house and store in the ceiling of my garage. Anyone have experience with this that could offer insight on what to do or not do? Any other methods that work well to save floor space?

I have a one man flip over and two medium sleds....

Buddy has one, might be able to get him to send me a picture
His lifts straight up with a small electric winch. Pretty slick actually.

I have an enclosed trailer that pretty much is used for ice fishing only, so my crap just summers in that.

I did this many years ago in the previous house. It had a sheet rocked ceiling and I wanted the heavy portable fish house made of plywood and blue tarp to be stored right above my pickup box. I put a winch on the wall, ran 4 cables up the wall through the ceiling. In the attic I had a piece of angle iron mounted and i put 4 little pulleys on it, 1 for each cable. From there the 4 cables went off in 4 directions to 4 more little pulleys that were directly above the 4 corners of the fish house. I had 2 2X4s that I would slide under each end of the house, clip the cable that ran down from the attic and through the sheet rock to the eye bolts on the 2X4s. Worked good.
