The Hoist

Most operating gondolas are kept in the water,
but other Venetian rowing craft
(especially the ones in rowing clubs)
are stored dry, and hoisted into the water before each excursion.
As you might imagine, the hoist is of great importance to club rowers.  I'll bet most clubs value their hoists as much as they value their boats.
