Can,t believe iv,e read some of these methods , !! thing to remember is to try and stay safe and not damage the boat , so jack the trailer with the boat still on it (that way any failure during jacking will just be like driving over a bump ) when you reach a reasonable height block the rear of the boat (past the end of the trailer of course) , lower the jack ! now pull the trailer out from the front ,once the trailer is 2/3rds jack and block the boat again , job done , make sure your blocks stop any rocking side to side (basically same as letting air out of tyres but gives you lots more than 2") trolley jack is best but I have done it with my 1 1/2 ton sports boat with a scissor jack ,much safer as while jacking your protected by the trailer

Yep, do it this way all the time. Trolley jack the back first and as you pull the trailer out insert your acro props or blocks etc. don't forget to use a couple of keel blocks along the way. Your not suppose to be suspending the whole thing on the props, just supporting it from falling sideways.

I followed a similar process as outlined by Orwell Boy with my Pacific 22. The forward end is a bit of a pain as the chassis bearers and axles mean you have to reposition the jack (with a load spreading block on top) a number of times. The other thing that can make it easier is to lift the tow hitch to lower the back of the trailer and vice versa.

Rather than using a vehicle to pull the trailer out from underneath I put a couple of ratchet straps from the bow eye to the trailer axle and winched the trailer forwards.

I made an extension for my jack handle so that I wasn't on the floor under the boat whilst releasing the jack.

I lifted mine from the bow and stern U bolts.

We beefed up the front bar after the first lift

I'd go and see Rogue
