getting boat off trailer (onland!)

Ok weather looks a little bland this weekend so may decide to get my trailer refurb'd, its only a small 3.5m Avon so just a case of grinding off the old rollers and fitting new ones and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on how to prop the boat up and slide the trailer out from underneath (safely) so I can get the work done?

The obvious answer being launch the boat, do the work and collect later but unfortunately that's not practical.

Slide it off the back onto the grass.

Once the stern is on the ground it obviously won't go back any further - let the trailer come forward.

Rib, or SIB? Hard hull, you can jack it up off the bunks/rollers, jackstand it up (using supporting wood blocks) pull trailer forward as much as possible, place more supports behind trailer crossmembers, repeat as needed til you're clear.

SIB, just get friends to lift it off.

DRop it onto the lawn, just drop engine down pop an old tyre (couple more each side if required) under stern pull trailer out from under (someone to hold stern) the once trialer done just lift the nose slip trailer under and winch on ....
IF you have no lawn just get more old tyres...

Place a couple of straw bales or tyres behind the boat, pull her manually off the rollers onto the bales, slide the trailer forward - job done.

Car tyres sounds like the easiest way, as usual things didn't quite go to plan and spent most if my "free time" yesterday getting a seized hub bearing off so maybe tomorrow to get the rest of the jobs done!
