boat hauling in the wild. No Travellift No Problem

I am storing my boat on the hard for he winter in a new place this winter, inside. I can do that a lot cheaper than I paid last year, outside under shrinkwrap. What's not to like? They don't have a travel lift or a crane. They did a darn good job with minimal equipment. I was very satisfied afterward.
What ways do the rest use when a travellift is not an option. In my case the guy uses a hydraulic trailer and a fairly big wheel loader. Pulls up a fairly steep ramp, and pulls about 400 yards, pushes up a a gravel hill and across bumpy railroad tracks, All went really good. I missed the actual pull from the water but took a short video of the move.

Looks just about the same as our yard's setup:

Not that uncommon. There's a 30,000 ft building in the neighborhood that uses the city ramp to fill it. I used to keep my 41express there, no issues. The owner paid the town to raise all the utilities lines between the ramp and his building.

Where I store my boats is about 1/2 a mile inland. The yard has a Brownell hydraulic trailer pulled by a normal diesel truck (tractor). Hauling the boat and transporting it over the road to the storage building takes about 20 minutes. The current driver prefers that I come along side at the ramp then we walk the boat onto the trailer. Before I stored at that yard I stored at home and the driver had me motor onto the trailer then towed me to my house (about 5 miles). The over the road transport is at the speed limit. Brownell trailers are air ride.

OK Guy's now I'm really confused, Did you get to see the video? Apparently you did. All I can see is a blank attachment and when I tried to edit it to fix, all I got was a video 'being processed message'. I know I am tech challenged, but I'm trying to learn.

Your video worked fine. One of our local yards has a self=propelled hydraulic trailer. They don't use it for hauling just for moving boats in the yard. they have three travel lifts for hauling.
