Personally, I'd just jack up the boat enough to fit my hand under the spots blocked by the trailer, but leave the trailer under the boat for safety. Use a large floor jack under the keel, and put a wood pad on it to protect your bottom when you jack it up. You can notch out the wood pad (and carpet it for extra cushion) to match the angle of the boat's bottom for extra stability.
I guess I should add: Put a stout jack stand, block of wood or other support under the keel after you jack it up to support the boat in case the jack loses pressure.

I don't think it's too dangerous if you have the right tools and equipment, be very careful and take your time.

Just slide under the trailer with a damp wash cloth and some hull cleaner or rubbing compound and clean the hull by hand. It won't take you as long as one might think. It will be much safer for you and your boat too!

Grease the trailer bunks before getting the boat out of the water, clip on hook, unclip hook to back in, reverse swiftly, abruptly stop!

Where did you get those blocks from? $ ? They must have been pretty dense.

A friend of mine had them made and gave them to me.

I see the big boats in the yard and they are like sitting on 2x4's and cinder blocks with wood blocks on top of them.

I would be extremely afraid of using cinderblocks. They're not made to support something that heavy........I've seen them break when shade tree mechanics have used them as jackstands.............
