Any tips on getting my boat off the building form and on my trailer?

When I flipped it I had 18 guys to help but now it most likely 500 lbs. heavier.

Svenole

That's all the things going through my head now. I'm not ready to do it yet. That doesn't mean my brain stopped spinning. I think I have 2400 pounds of boat to get out of the basement and raise it 2 feet and get a trailer under it. :? I'm sure we'll get it done.

EDIT: Wet the bunks and put dishwashing detergent on them to lubricate them.

Sometimes it's just good to know that someone else is going through it also.

Svenole, You might consider trying to move the trailer under the boat rather than trying to move the boat on top of the trailer. Here is a video that covers removing a boat from a trailer. Although it is the opposite task, you should be able to do something similar.

Thanks but I don't have room for that. that video made me nervous! lol ,the boat is in a very tight area and Im going to have to spin it first before im able to get it lined up with the trailer ugg! the good thing is the trailer and the building form are close to the same height.

My guess is about 1000 lbs. and my other guess is I will need 5 :arrow: 200 lbs. friends to spin n push :!: not to easy to arrange and one things really burns me up is I hired a friend for the electric and motor work, prepaid him and he screwed me! ouch! lost a friend and some money. just have to keep moving man.

Svemole,

Ive put a strap around the transom rather than all that pressure on the bow eye. Just my .02.

Don't take any chances.
Consider renting a gantry hoist (or two).

I moved my gentry off my dollies onto my trailer (wheels taken off) with a engine lift and a come-along hooked to an overhead beam. Pretty smooth. I made trailer dollies to roll the boat around the shop.
