Just hit a bump in the road. To get the boat out, the transporter needs his Hydraulic lift. Unfortunatley, it is a monster long trailer and simply cannot get to where the boat is. Lots of room for a pick up and a regular sailboat trailer.
So....back to doing it myself. Have borrowed a trailer that a guy uses for a Tanzer 22 and have a buddy with a large pick up. Now , simply raise cradle, carefully slide cradle onto trailer, and drive away. Should be able to dig under the cradle, slide in a jack, and slowly raise it front, back, front, back, blocking it as I go. If I cannot slide the cradle onto the trailer, then the fun begins. As the boat is in between two trees (see my avatar), should be able to slide a sling under the boat at the front bulkhead and hang it from the trees, block up the transom area, slide the trailer underneath. Sound feasible?
