move the boat
If movers in Salt Lake City can move a 300,000 ton brick building across the street from its original location, it should be possible to move the President. How, construct a sled-cradle place it in the river and pull the President on to the cradle, pull the cradle out of the water and once on hard dry ground jack up the cradle put moving dollies under it and mover her to where she wants to go. Or place the cradle on a drydock float the President on to it and then slide the cradle off to dry land jack her up place dollies and away she goes.
