Luckily there has been some rain as of late, so your level may start coming up. I currently have my boat in Texoma, and it is still down a bit, but coming up.
I would agree that the best solution is just pulling it and putting it on stands. Or, bettter yet, pull it and drop it in Texoma. It is an awesome sailing lake, and good prep for the ocean.
If you cannot have it pulled or craned out, the railroad ties are probably the best solution I can think of. Let the boat lean over slightly on the dock WITH LOTS OF BLANKETS OR TOWELS to protect it. Tie the boat off fairly tightly to try and keep it from moving... especially on the oppostie side that will take some pressure off the side on the dock.
One Disclaimer: THis IS MY OPINION! I HAVE NOT DONE THIS! I am just speculating what I would do in your circumstances, so don't come back and start writing posts about "That Cruisingdad is sooo awsome on everything else, is obviously very knowledgeable, knows everything about sailing, is the Hinckley of cruisers, but gave me bad advice on my boat!"
Well, on second thought, maybe you can come back and write everything but the last part! HAHA. If you want any more thoughts on Texoma, let me know. You can PM me and I can give you some thoughts.
PS I drive 2 1/2 hours each way to get to Texoma... tells you what I think about it.
