Hiya all! Temps are rising here in the Northeast so it's time to start working on things. So I've got a trailer with no VIN # and no title that needs to be titled and registered. Looks like I'm going to have to get the trailer weighed and inspected in order to obtain a title. It's going to be classified as homemade. The problem I've got it how to get the boat off the trailer and on to blocks, the right way. I have done some google searching but figured I'd ask here. What's the best way to get my Sportsman 120 off the trailer and is it safe to put it on cinder blocks? I've read all sorts of stuff from using a tow truck to hanging the boat from a tree, none of these are an option for me. I'm figuring cinder blocks and a 2x8 on each side of the stern. Moving forward about 3/4 of the boat's length towards the bow I would put cinder blocks and 2x8s on each of the outer sections of the hull. (The 'wing' section as I call it). I'd love to get some input from you folks. Thanks!
