Any reason not to hang a boat?

So I was trying to think of innovative ways to store my boats and I came up with the following. Put an eye bolt into a rafter in the stair well and attach a pully and string them up from the front handle or security bar. My two boats fit very nicely and don't feel like your going to hit your head on them, they are indoors and not on their bottom to oil can.

Can you guys think of any reasons this may damage the boats hanging like this long term? I was thinking it may weaken the pastic around the security bars and handles...

I've been storing boats like that for years and have never had any problems. Theoretically it could weaken the grab loops and the plastic around them but I think the wear is insignificant, especially when compared to the alternative storage methods.
