Is it possible to construct or access something that doesn't cost the earth to lift a 2 1/2 tonne Broads type wooden boat with fixed keel, about 20ft long, from a launching trolley onto a trailer?

I can't see any mileage in trying to construct something to do the job, you're talking about something like a Derick (Derek?) crane and it would have to be quite solid.

Have a word with a few boatyards if there are any near you. they must have equipment that can lift this kind of weight. Otherwise crane hire.

Try the farmer at thurne, he lifts loads of boats durring the season, he lifted my day launch, and a friends yacht no problems. He use strops on a hiab type thing, and is very reasonably priced. alternatively use eastwood whelpton at upton, again, very good ppl

Try Peter Linford of Wayford Bridge Boat Co 01692 580465,

Came to my house with mobile crane, lifted my 2 ton 28ft sailing cruiser onto a road trailer as gently and professionally as you like, 18 months ago.

Very obliging, flexible on timing, reasonably priced, recommend him to anyone.

Do bear in mind that any lifting gear will need to be tested and certificated if used in a public place. (Third party and public liability issues) There are combined trailers where the launching trolley is winched onto the road trailer.  These are also an advantage when trying to get the boat into a shed with a low roof line. They are not cheap but if the trolly is designed /set up for your boat it can reduce a complicated operation to a simple two man job.

Try Martham Boatbuilding and Development, Cess Road Martham. Thay have a hydraulic trailer which lifts all of there yachts and cruisers outs.

Very good slip there too, each season myself and others slip my 20ft 90 year old halfdecker and sailing cruisers in and out for about 5 to 10 quid a go. Can be a bit daunting to the beginner, but usaully someone about to help.

Or try Riachrdsons (Pheonix fleet) at Potter bridge.
