As long as you're hanging a beam across your rafters you could nail together some tall chocks to bear the weight on either side of the hoist. If you don't trust the roof frame with the load and are desperate for a solution, that's only a few $ and they sit in the corner until you need them again or use them to build something else.

( bind them to the rafter at the top so they don't slip and let the beam pull down your roof )
