Chock it onto blocks, let the tyres down, gives you 2" of clearance.

I've done this very recently, 10m boat. Ideally you invoke the skills of a major boat builder along with their controlled environment. A pair of McLaughlin Skyhooks (forklifts) then strap up to the Bow eye and transom eyes and lift the rig off the trailer. Trailer is removed and coppercoating commences. Coppercoating is a dark art - make sure you have lots of help, time and small roller sleeves for the chines. Trust me....

Be careful, don't underestimate the dead weight of these yokes if it all goes tits up... My boat is only 250kg-ish plus 90kg motor and I had to jack it up to replace a robbed roller, kinda scary working under it, there's not much to grip

Good luck

Nup, not sure that would work. As soon as the load is off the trailer the relieved suspension will raise the trailer. My trailer sits something like 6" higher when unloaded.

We've taken the dive boat off a couple if Times. As others have said we secured the rear and gently drove forward with a coupe of people propping bales under as we went forward.

Jacking the trailer up, propping the hull, then lowering and repeat on other side should work too.

But with an offer of propper kit, I'd go that way.

Ive done this a couple of times with my old sports cruiser, weighed 2 tonne ish as well.
I used adjustable boat stands. lifted the boat off the trailer and pulled the trailer from underneath.
