An abundance of caution would be advised if you're going to lay under it to paint.

Yes of course - I am looking at buying some Brownell boat stands as well; it would not be on the gantry when maint is being performed:

Here is a video of getting it off the trailer with no gantry but the gantry seems like a better idea if possible.

This looks pretty reasonable: http://www.gohoist.com/

$1475 for a set of 2, might meet your width requirements Jim

Width of hoist at base: 11.5'
Lets you easily pull through any boat trailer that is 10' wide.

Free shipping and $350 off till June 25th.
$1475 total.

Looks like they have some vids of happy customers on the FB page, they are even doing flips with it.
