So I'm guessing a 4 wheel trailer would be too hard for this?
Yes you will definitely struggle with a twin axle trailer into & out of that spot twin axle trailers are numb to manoeuvre by hand
even trying to lift the front is difficult as your trying to take the load off the front axle which should be taking 50% ish of the trailers load, most jockey wheels are rated around 75kg which is the usual nose weight recommended for trailers
trying to lift the weight on the jockey wheel makes them difficult to push even over the slightest pebble or step in a slab & its also likely to be damaged as they are usually extended quite high to lift the front axle off the ground
I always think twin axle trailers are a pita for boats anyway,twice the things to go wrong & twice the maintenance
unless the boat is way over the sensible capacity of a single axle then i'd chose a single every time
