Lift for bicycle

Shopping for a lift for a tandem bicycle.

The bike is relatively light at 35# and I can almost lift it up to the flybridge, but it's really awkward.

We store it on the outer portion of the flybridge, outside the railing, on the overhang on our 40ft Mainship.

Getting it up the stairs is not horrible, but a PITA. Have to remove the front tire and turn the second handlebars sideways, and it's still tricky to get it up there.... so shopping for a simple life.

The St. Croix 175 little davit would be perfect.... except for the price. So shopping for something similar. Only need to lift ~35 lbs, but the geometry is important... so I can lift it without banging the side of the boat and get it up easily. (I've got a St. Croix lift on the other side for my tandem kayak, which weight 100 lbs and it works great.)

Any other options for the bike?
