    Not a run of the mill propeller shaft, it's adjustable pitch too!
    If I have to use a hoist, its not unusual that good control is needed as well. A manual chain fall is the clear path to that, gaining fine control.

    Who doesn't monkey around a bit, to find and grab the right chain to lift and lower? Would be some challenge, starting with getting them attached up there.
