Default Gantry Cranes

What are you guys using for Gantry or A-Frame cranes to pull your power? A friend has a cheapie i've used before but that thing makes me nervous! Northern has a decent one 10' wide 10' tall. I figured a little taller might be nice.

A local tow truck can also pluck that baby and set her back in for not more than beer money.

That is what I do to. My local guy pulls and sets it in about 30 minutes either direction. Of course I have every detail ready.

I built one out of wood. Needed 12' of vertical and it barely cleared the transom. $120 worth of lumber and a 1 ton chain fall worked perfect.
