I had never done this either but don't know if my method will help you. I am fortunate to have a small tractor and with my neighbours tractor as well, we lifted the boat high enough to get the trailer under it. Used the bow eye and two trailer tie down eyes on the transom as lift points. If you have buddies with tractors (or any other lifting type equipment) offer fishing trips in exchange for help... Free beer works too. That equipment working on the tree in your picture would probably make short work of it.
Hydraulic jack and cribbing as per Fuzz would probably be the most practical way to do it if no equipment was available although I think Narfi's method would be the most fun.

At the boat shop I work at in the summer, we use steel tripod style stands that we can raise and lower just by turning a collar on the stand while it's loaded. See if you can get a hold of some medium stands and low stands. you could then jack the boat up off the cradle with the medium height stands, get the cradle out of the way,and then lower it onto the lower stands. We always used to position the front stand pretty far aft, so that you can lower the nose onto the trailer, then slowly drop the back end down whilst sliding the trailer under. Once 90% of the boat is on the trailer, remove the stands and gently winch the boat the final few inches or so. Might not be advisable on soft unstable ground, but those stands are pretty cheap, and will be super helpful if you ever want to work/repaint the bottom. just an idea.

Hi guys !! New season :D Hope winter and spring was good to everyone ! I did not lurk on the site much last winter, too busy with other things but once in a while I did to see what is going on with the crowd.

So this year it is the electrical and finishing outfitting hopefully. I'm not sure if she will be launched this summer as I am in the process of house shopping with my new squeeze and fiance :D so my time is limited with all the running around; never mind the repairs and painting when I find one. Cottage is sold to my bro' and I am looking for a place in the woods - somewhere with running hot water, a real toilet and a shower :lol:

The electrical is tedious - I hate overlapping crossing wires, wanting things clean and tidy with the ground wires kept together so that is taking some time. Also more importantly, I decided to change her name to "Penny" to honor my sister who passed away around Christmas. Penny was her nickname from when we were kids watching the family Robinson in a cheesy sci-fi "Lost in Space". The name stuck since - I'm sure she is thrilled :D.

All in all I am happy with the progress. Oh yeah; I bought the trailer, the windows and cushions are going to fabrication in a few months.

Hi,

Sorry for your lost, it will be a great tribute to your sister.

You can lift the boat with hydraulic jack, support it with temporary frames and slide the trailer understand it easily, I did it to remove a broken trailer from a 28 footer.

After saw you using bed liner I'm considering use it too.
