changing tire on trailer with boat on trailer

Yes, it takes a lot to shift the boat. We jacked up 11,000 lbs of boat on trailer to block up and take pressure off tires while we work on it in our yard.

When our friends brought it from their house to our yard, the trailer slipped and rolled back in their yard about 5 ft. until it finally bumped against wheel blocks. With 11,000 lbs rolling and then coming to an abrupt stop, they were freaking that the boat might slide right off the trailer! In fact, it only shifted 1 inch, amazing!
