I'd infate the boat, lift the bow of the boat (so its resting with the majority of weight on the rear of the tubes) & slide the trolley under from the bow , wheel/launch it as needed, recover as you would a rib on a bunk trailer, and do the reverse ........... sounds simple !

a i normally do as peter m says in the last post,, Depending on sea conditions,or if its a bit lumpy ,, i turn the boat around on the trolly so its bow to sea for launching ,that way your facing the oncoming waves ,,saves waves sloshing into the transom and engine and boat before you set off,,alot though depends on the launch site ,wether or not its a shallow beach or slip.
