Have the same problem here in OZ with shallow lakes and ramps. Mastercrafts do sit pretty high on the trailer and need a fair amount of water to float them off. (compared to the smaller locally made hulls here) I would not extend your towbar but as suggested earlier maybe look at a removable trailer extension. In the short term, as long as there is no one waiting at the ramp, try chocking your trailer tyres hook a rope to it and tie to your van. Let your trailer ease down the ramp and launch your boat. Reverse for retrieval. Bit of a muck around but end of the season for you and gives you time to think about the situation if it is only one of the places you launch. Have fun.
