To all who answered

Just read the same question in Contractor Talk Forums.
It was an interesting subject, but I'm out!

"freind of a freind will do some reinforcing" "strongbacks" "adding uprights"

The solid and professional advice in response to the question came from Mighty Anvil with whom I have to agree....and also led to a bit of freindly banter with hammerslammer.

Just wanted to put an update up of the finished setup. I put vertical 2X6 supports running from the lower cord to the upper cord of the rafters. Then I added straps, which should help distribute the weight over 5 points and not just everything on the winch. I then raise the ski enough to get the straps under it, then I lower 50% of its weight on the straps. Now I just need to copy this setup for the other ski and hang it right next to this one, park the boat underneath it and I am ready for winter..
