The engine can be "walked" up the transom by undoing one side whilst braced from underneath with a stout support. The other side should now be left with one bolt only, loosened.
You now swing the engine up to meet the next hole and insert bolt. Assuming enough give in transom holes to accept this method.
Now remove the pivot bolt and raise that side.
Needs a few hands but very do-able.
Chock and brake the trailer mind.
Spot on Mr P. Beat me to it again.
Tis a one man job though.
