Getting a beached back back into the water...


This is my first post on this forum. I hope someone may be able to help. My mates and I beached our Benetau Piranha sailboat, when the water in Lake Windermere was high, so we could do some repairs. Now, when the boat is looking good and ready to sail, we find we can't get the boat afloat again. We are on a beach (not steep, but stoney), and wonder if there is any combination of rollers, or props, or jacks, or maybe some inflatable device, that will help us to reduce the friction between the boat and the beach... so a few strong lads can heave it back in. Please don't just tell us we've been a bit daft... We know this already. We're in the English Lake District. Any ideas??

Many thanks...
