I have a 14 hp mower and it wouldn't move a bigger boat around on a hill. The drive system for my small lawnmower is a belt drive. It slips under heavy loads. If you plan to go that route, make sure to check the drive system and its capacity carefully. Hydro would probably be the best.

I have a small slope on the way when pushing the trailer to our inner yard. Its very though to push it alone, just on the limit with a potential injury risk if the foot would slip.

Her a picture of my solution, first prototype(not so little diy over it... ) but works surprisingly well. The winch is remote controlled so can steer the trailer from the front. It is only strapped to the teras so it is easy to remove each time. Only stuff that i purchased was the winch, the rest was leftover from the garage, including a old tired car battery.
