The solution for that is really easy!
Be sure that she fully participates in the assembly, ask her to fit in the floorboards & stringers, and for heaven's sake don't let on about the trick of placing the oars in parallel under the boat when doing this. It is even better if you can schedule such outing shortly after a manicure.
You should have the desired trailer within about 2 weeks. If your tow vehicle could benefit from turbocharging, this would be a perfect time to convince SWMBO of the need for this as well.
Why does it take a single guy to see these things with such clarity?
