What is the best way to remove and support a 16ft 1957 Carver boat off her trailer and on to dry land.

Thanks Brad

Blocking Off

Assuming you don't have boat jacks.

Drop the trailer hitch as far down as you can.

Now block the aft end of the boat up.

Next raise the trailer hitch up as far as you can.

Now block the keel behind and forward of the axles.

Set stands at the chines (sail boat type work best).

Lower the hitch.

You should be able to move the trailer forward to the keel block.

Move the keel block aft and move up again, set another keel block and so forth.
