Done! The Boat is on the Trailer


The task was easier than expected. Most of the time we needed to reinstall and adjust the supports
 
This small lifting jack was the hero of the action. With his help we moved the boat from the building supports onto the trailer
  


1. Initial situation
2. Starboard mudguard, bow-support and midships supports removed
3. to 6. Moving the trailer under the jacked boat
7. The trailer has been well positioned under the boat
8. The trailer supports are remounted
9. Done. The boat lies on the trailer. The longitudinal position is perfect. The center of gravity is well positioned so that trailer and boat are perfectly balanced.

How do I get the Boat on the Trailer?


 The idea is to shift the trailer under the jacked boat. Therefore the bow support has to be replaced in order to positioning the towing bar of the trailer under the bow.

 
  


For replacing the bow support I prepared a girder with sufficient clearance for the trailer below.

The Trailer has Arrived

Today I took the trailer from the dealer and drove to my shipyard.
Now it is time to think about how I get the boat on the trailer.
