It's going onto one of the fletcher trailers, keel rollers with half rear bunks
Watch out for the sparks from the grinder on the hull

I've done the same with my SR4, but from one roller trailer to another, I used the trailer winch strap to pull the rib backwards off the trailer onto some rubber matting by taking the winch strap back to the swing beam, once the rib is nearly off the trailer just put the strap straight to the bow eye again, pulling it on the new trailer is straight forward on a roller trailer but I guess at bit more hard work on a bunked trailer, just take it steady it's easy enough

Or just get 8 mates round and lift it? What motor? 4 at the back 2 at the front and 2 to pull trailer out and roll new one in, 2 minutes and a slab of beers..... Local rugby team are ideal

It's an SR4... you can drop it onto something soft and pick the bow up by hand to reload it!

Straw bales rather than tyres - normally right height, easy and cheap to get hold off and easy to get rid of - and much more slippery than tyres! Simple!

I did this with with my 340 avon, 3 of us simply picked it up and carried over, 2 on the rear transform and one on the front, id imagine a couple more on a 4 metre! Top tip make sure new trailer attached to car so doesn't move around!

Just push it off the trailer it's only 4 metres long, hook the winch from the new trailer to the bow eye and pull it on, it was harder to write this post than do the job

I'm with Biffer on this one!

I've slipped my 17ft hardboat complete with 135 V6 off & on to 4 tyres a few times with no issues.

All done!! Risked it and towed it to Portland slipway & made it! Straight into the water for its first run & it won't go faster than tickover & it dies!

Shoved it on the new trailer, adjusted the bunks and rollers and it's all sorted!
