How Can I Lift My 21-Foot Sailboat Off Its Trailer?

Hi - Newbie Sailor Here...

I have a 1972 MacGreggor Venture 21 currently in a slip - but come mid-October, I'm going to put it on its trailer for the winter. As I want to work on the keel over the winter (it has a swing-keel), I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how I might be able to lift it off the trailer and put it on blocks (by myself). Because I'm not wealthy, I'm hoping there's a way I can use wood beams and jacks, or SOMETHING to accomplish this.

Thank you in advance for any advice, information or suggestions.
Marc
