    If you have access to big equipment then use it. if it were me I would use a crane with two straps(slings) one at the bow through the bow eye ant one at the back, just ahead of the intake, using the intake fins as a stop to keep the strap from sliding of.

    Well you go to the lake. Have someone back you in.Thennn tell them to go paint the trailer and comeback. If they did a good job you will give them a ride.


    Or do like I have done. I have a automotive hoist. Pull the trailer in and use 2 straps and lift the hoist and drive trailer out. Know a guy who uses a large A-frame.

    My question is it to heavy to lift like that? I have done plenty of 19' that way but its 21' Liberator and seems really heavy. Its my Dads boat so don't want to damage it. Do I put the straps horizontal or parallel? Like long wise or width wise?

    Tom, the boat I need to get off the trailer has a pump and a motor in it. Thats why I am concerned.

    How is the picker hooked up in the front of this pic? Looks like a good easy way to flip a heavier boat.

    You can do the whole job with no heavy equipment.
    Just the trailer tongue jack and some wood blocks.

    1) Crank the jack down as far as it will go, stack up some large wood blocks under the transom just past the last trailer crossmember.
    2) Crank the jack up to well above level and stack another block pile under either side of the keel to support the front of the boat.
    3) Let the jack down and the boat will now be sitting on the blocks and the trailer will be loose.

    As you roll the trailer forward you will have to put a floor jack under the keel a couple times to release and change the blocks as you come up against a trailer crossmember.

    Of course you want to protect the bottom of the boat from the jack plate with a piece of plywood or heavy carpet.
    Use some common sense and it works fine.

    That sounds like a good way to do it. Spraying the carpet on the trailer bunks with some water will help it slide off.

    Thank you as well. As of now I think we just may use the lift in the shop.
