I just saw 2 trucks with a power lift to put a boat upon the frame work (part of the package) on a pickup. The boat then was carried upsidedown. You would have to remove the outboard and everything not securely anchored or not below the gunnels to use this rig.

My buddy built a rack to carry his car topper over the roof of his crew cab as he pulls a fiver. He drops a post with a boat winch attached into a mount on the rig and uses a 4 point sling to lift the boat and swing it into position. Looks crude but it works.

My neighbor had a setup resembling RoyMs description. It was a vertical post that attached to either his front or rear hitch receiver with a boat winch to lift either the front or rear of his 16' onto a ladder rack.
He was able to load it himself but always seemed to find help from inquisitive bystanders.

This is what my Father in law and I developed almost a year ago, it allows to you to carrie the boat with the motor on with out any need of flipping the boat while traveling.

It has been in use ever since.

You could always triple tow. Seen a vehicle just last weekend on I25 Northbound. It was a car/SUV/Station Wagon (don't know what to call them anymore) with a travel trailer directly behind it towing a boat. They were upside down on the side of the road. I believe the trailer was just a tad too big for the tow vehicle.
