Just too add.

Funny how little injuries early in life can affect quality of life later in life. Did I say funny, they really aren't.

I went and bought a couple of pallets of shorts.

Down at the sawmill yesterday. The guy working there that helped me. He looked like he could pick up and carry a 300Lb. box about anywhere all by himself without even breaking a sweat.

Carve up a couple of cardboard boxes and lie them flat on the ground. Place the safe on the cardboard and slide it down the hilled area in the grass? Maybe?

It will work if there is some grass.

300# isn't that much, and that tile is tougher than you think, unless it was installed by a hack. Rip some pieces of 1/2" plywood to cover the treads, get a couple of friends to help. Don't build a ramp, unless you have a lot of confidence in your abilities, that can go wrong quickly.

All he has to do is grab a gantline, tie a timber hitch around the safe. And then back it down off of the nearest mooring bitt.

You make it sound so easy. Being raised around boats I get it. Always had a lot of respect for the mm. In my younger days my dad worked for a company called electro-nav repairing radios and radar on ships. Got to ride along with dad and go to the ports. Most times the captain would allow me to come on board and hang out in the bridge. 13 years old standing at the helm of a tanker was awesome.

I assumed he didn't want to wait until high tide....

If for some reason I don't survive I will post about it from the Great Beyond.
Now you’re just making some of us jealous... the 135 lb part!
