If the boat is on a trailer, you can often build a framework to support the boat and use the trailer to get the framework in place. If you lower the front end of the trailer as low as it will go, it may be possible to put a heavy wooden frame under the aft end of the boat... then you raise the front of the trailer as much as possible and put a framework under the front end of the boat. Done properly, you can then remove the trailer from underneath the boat.
BTW, I've done something similar with my boat when I had her out for sodablasting and bottom painting, and I doubt your boat is as heavy as mine.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
