My trailer situation

Postby Lake Erie Monster » May 20th, 2014, 11:00 pm

Ok so the good news is i have both engines running great. the bad news is the boat is on an unacceptable trailer, the trailer isn's bad per say but its just too small for my boat to be taken on the road. and it is balanced way too much on the back. the boat hauler refused to tow it for me (and rightly so) but told me i had to get it on stands and he could come get it with his hydrolic trailer. so my question is how do i get it on stands or blocks.

If it is at your home or not at a boat yard, then a crane of some sort would work. If at a boatyard/marina they could lift it off with a travel lift. Yes I know there is an expense to this, but given the weight of the boat, I am not sure what other options exist.

I've never seen it done, but I've heard of people using multiple jack stands and jacks under the keel. Set the stands so when the boat is lifted, the trailer could be moved forward, even a little bit. And then keep doing it until the trailer is out.
Thanks
