    I put moving blankets over some old tires ( double stacked) and set the boat down on them right above the dash and at the rear did the same at the transom.

    I did that about 20 yrs ago. I used a boat dolly and I think I used 4x4" across the front and rear with blankets, it worked just fine.

    Furniture dollies. Put them under the tires two in the front (the dash area) and two at the corners of the transom and you will have an upside down gullwing that you can move around where ever you want it.

    I've had the gullwing turned over once and my old Kachina three times. I used saw horses and set the stringers on the saw horses after flipping it. Used two cherry pickers to flip it using bow eye and pump for pickup points. Obviously you need a good solid set of saw horses, but it works. Placed one saw horse just in front of the transom and the other just behind the dash. I put a piece of carpet padding between the stringers and saw horse to keep it from sliding around. I was even up on top of it crawling around and sanding vigorously for long periods of time and it still did fine.

    If you do it this way there's no weight on the deck (or even contact for that matter). It's all supported by the stringers.

    I know you want to put it back on the dolly and this method won't work for that, but maybe modify it a bit. Basically just figure some way to hold the boat up via the stringers rather than setting it on the deck.
