You might look at having a local boat hauler with a hydralic trailer move the boat to a hoist, where you can then put the boat on a trailer safely and sanely. My step dad did this about 3 yrs ago after building a boat for over 30 yrs. We then took the boat to where it could be fitted with a mast, and a hoist to then put her in the water. For us everything was done within 20 miles, for you it could be different.

Plus's and minus's to all ways. But a custom built trailer for 3500, moving it is easy. boat is 9+'wide, wieghs 6000 lbs, maybe 7000 with the trailer. No issues behind my dually pickup.
