You can lift the boat using the bow eye and the two lifting rings on the transom.

Thanks Drylandfish, He sent me over info how to block it up and he has pic's. Thanks guys for your help on this one. Today the real fun of getting it off the trailer and up on blocks I cant wait to get to work on it.

I started to wetsand the boat on the trailer with some 600 and finished with microfine 2000 to see how bad the gelcoat is so far so good.The white on the bottom has been sprayed on with a can and is comming off it is not part of the boat's gelcoat. I am going to buy some tripple cut for the polishing and wax it down. Looks like it is going to take some time but I think it is going to look great when it is done. I will have post some pic's of the progress.

I Jacked Up The Rear Of The Boat And Put Jackstands And A Block Of Wood On Each One; And When That Was Done I Got A Engine Hoist And A Strap And Jacked Up The Front Of The Boat; Pulled The Trailer Out And Lower It Down On A Couple Of Hay Bales; I Did It By Myself; It Would Be Helpfull If You Had Some More Eyes And Hands.

I needed to have some glass and gelcoat repaired on my hull a few years back. This is how they layed it over on some fender bumpers to make it easier to work on the bottom. Looks like their shop was set up with a couple of overhead hoists for removing boats from trailers... must be nice!

Thanks Slim for the extra info. Your right a extra hand is always nice.

JLeuck64 wow that would be nice if I did have a overhead crane like that to tip the boat on it's side. It would also be nice to have it to get it off the trailer. I am going to use the old school way jack and block's.

I did mine solo with a lot of blocks and towels. The center block was cut into a slight "V" with the towels to further protect it. I wanted to distribute the weight as much as possible.

It took some time but I was able to do it no problem. Keep in mind....I did it when everyone (kids, wife and dog) were away. I didn't want to risk someone bumping into it or climbing in.

That would have been a bummer.

It's nerve racking to see it on jack stands. I did it to re-finish my trailer so I was not touching the boat at all. Be sure to fully support it......especially if you are working underneath it.

Good luck!
