All this to get a boat out the water what the hell i will just keep it in next winter save the hassle.

The front beam needs to be sat under the console. The rollers need to be far enough apart so the keel is just clear of the swing beam I.e move the sets of rollers to port & starboard to increase the gap between them, this will lower the keel towards the beam & reduce the "hump" that you're trying to climb. Sorry if I'm teaching my granny to suck eggs.
