Reconfiguring "Drive On" Trailer to "Drag on"

I saw these pictures in an older post, but haven't yet been able to reach the author by PM. So I figured I'd open it up to a new thread and see if I can find any more information.

I ask, because I receive a lot of dirty looks at a few launches trying to drive my '86 skier up onto the trailer. I know they're clearly marked "No Powerloading", but unfortunately, there's simply no way around it. I don't care how you do it, or how far or little you back it in, there is no winching the boat onto my current trailer. The original manual even has directions how to drive it on and "throttle" up the bunks.

So I've been considering doing something similar to the conversion this guy did.... anyone do anything similar? Other options? Does it work well?
