    Default Safely removing my boat from the trailer

    I need to replace the carpet on my trailer and I'd like to paint it. Would it harm the boat to lift the rear by the engine with an A-frame or cherry picker so I could pull the trailer out and get the boat on proper stands while I fix up my trailer? If not have any suggestions?

    Multiple ways to skin a cat , you might just secure the boat to something solid and slowly pull the trailer out from under it with truck or winch while shoring up the boat as you go or go creative with shop cranes and ?? ..

    There are few things more unerving in this world than seeing a boat suspended off the ground five or so feet! Good luck with your project boss!

    Mine still floats for now so it survived! Take pics of yours when you pop her off the trailer!

    Not a bit. Picked mine up by the pump and had sum buddies pick up the front.

    Here is how I did mine. I am lucky, but doing it at home with a couple of cherry pickers as a previous poster showed. I was more comfortable with the strap under the hull, but if your stringers are in good shape and your hardware is as well, I'd be comfortable with lifting by the engine. Just probably not one of those I take manifold plates! That might put a bit too much weight on your carb studs.
