The tilting trailer seems like a real challenge -- can't think of how you'll get it to tilt and un-tilt 'on command' -- will you use a 12v electric trailer winch or ??
If the water is really shallow you may find it easier for that poor SOB to get wet, aka 'swim the trailer' -- as tilting may not do you much good in shallow water. After all, the water has to be deep enough to float the boat -- and if it is that deep, you won't need to tilt anything.
Had to do just that this weekend at Stone Lagoon, although I left the trailer attached to the truck and will just live with the rusty brakes.
And how will you support the tuck up near the transom? As I showed earlier in the thread, one solution is to have posts that can be lowered for launch/retrieval, then raised for trailering/storage --
