changing bunk supports with spirit 23 still on trailer

the bunk supports on my trailer are in pretty bad shape .
i tried changing them out at the public boat ramp,was hard to work
with out power and all the traffic.
plus i was by myself and the boat kept getting blown off the center support rail before i could get it cranked in .

took me about 20 times before i got it so the swing keel was on the board.

any advice on how to jack up the hull enough to change one support at a time in my yard.
i have pavers ,cinderblocks ,boards , one railroad screw jack and several bottle jacks . would a 12"x12" piece of padded plywood work best or 4' secton of 2"x6" work better .

if i change them out at home ,i can take the lower section to work and beadblast them then cold galv them .
