tie the trailer off to a strongpoint so it cant run away and then run the jockey wheel up a car ramp. you could get a tame welder to put high sides on the ramp. this will effectively lower the back end of the trailer



i'm off to look for a safe mover be back soon

The best option is break back trailers however

Getting there.
Chock the trailer wheels, run the bowline from your pulley through an eye over the top of the trailer pulley and onto the bow.
simply cranking the boat onto the trailer will allow the boat to slide onto the trailer and balance itself once on. A bit of physical damping and care to be taken at the tipping point though!!!!

if the above suggestions don't work

http://www.globalindustrial.com/g/ma...-steel-handles


take the concept of this tool and fab something up

i to have a small V cradle at the end of the short lever. With a bit of effort that should easily raise the front of the boat enough to make the trailer

As others have said chock wheels and winch on from trailer winch to bow d ring. If you are worried about the chocking of the wheels then run a tether from the trailer axle (the pivot point) to a good anchor point.
You will still need a line or something to control the trailer hitch though.

a long pole on the jockey wheel would do the same job

I'd wondered that too.

Hows about an A frame on the back half of the trailer, lift the boat nose on with a winch. Possibly very simple to achieve.

I have lifted boats with a 2 foot drop out of a canal or when its a spring tide and its caused a drop off at the end of the slipway using this method
Just make up a bridle fixed to the transom about the same length as the hull
Run it under the boat with a shorter piece of rope joining the bridle together so that the bridle ropes don't get separated too much by each side of the keel ,
( the shorter the cross rope the higher the boat will be lifted )
Using the trailer winch it can then be lifted & winched right onto the trailer in one go ,
Just make sure that the short rope or a webbing strop joining the bridle together is strong as well as the transom fixings as it is that which takes the main load of the lift .
& that you have a roller right at the end of the trailer .

thanks guys, i will give a few of those a go and see if they make it any easier. The strops under the boat is an interesting one, not sure how easy it would be to do regularly but will give it a go on wednesday.
