Kimberly, that knot to the right of the hook is a no-go for me. You don't mention how long those joists are or how far apart they are either. That area could be reenforced but I wouldn't do it. If you don't want to buy an engine lift rent one. My hoist is hanging from a 7 x 9 oak beam. I didn't weigh the cover but it's close to 100#.
