How about something like this? Anyone have experience with that? Would it hold a 220lb lardass over that span? Price seems reasonable, but can't imagine what shipping would cost.

I had read (here?) that it was a GOOD idea to soak the cables with WD40, as wear comes from within the cable strands when it stretches as it takes on load. Not so? Why?

Hmmm... I like this method. I do something similar when I'm attaching to concrete block (inside). Drill a hole in the block, hammer a dowel in the hole, and just use drywall screws. Thanks!

One swallow does not a summer make. Risk = probability of it happening X damage that would be incurred if it happens. This is a high risk venture, as probability is high as is damage (loss of boat).
