I did a smaller scale but similar project on my Siren 17 at only around 800 lbs way back when. I made my own plywood boxed boat stands/cradles, used a come-along from a rafter to lift the stern, pulled the trailor out some, slid in the rear stand/cradle, let the boat rest now on the trailor AND cradle, and then did a similar thing up front. Not very elegant, a bit tricky, but not supporting the whole boat weight at any one time from the ceiling rafter of my garage may be the key in my example.
