Hmm... love the Laser gondola idea but then I got all excited by the prospect of a tricked out garden tractor. This might be the winner for the time being.

Or get a Moth and you can carry it back up hill. No problem at 10kg or so.

<<Why not get a little quadbike/trike or the like to tow it up there.>>  That is indeed a practical possibility.  But for the against-the-traffic trip home, the necessary home-made   'road closed for five minutes' sign at the top of the hill is likely to cause unhappiness........

Is there a local rugby team, or similar? Could you persuade the coach that pulling a Laser up the hill, or even carrying it, would be good training for them? You could offer them the use of your Laser for the purpose for free, if they agreed to coordinate their training with your sailing needs!

Boring solution, buy a road base and trail it from your house to the slipway.

As your thinking laterally anyway, downgrade to a Topper.  you can get trollies where the boat sits on its edge, a bit like a B and Q  trolley for carrying long lengths of timber. A Topper hull only weighs 43 kg and if the top edge of the trolley was at waist height you would find it much easier to push.  Before you say Toppers are kid's stuff look at some of the all age opens in a breeze.  You will no doubt see grown men of 90 kg and more enjoying themselves and picking up some prizes.

Could you store it against a wall with the pointy end up?

Possibly, but in this area it's a bit like looking for a spot to do that within 200 metres of Big Ben or the Coit Tower or wherever you are from.

And there's steep slopes away from the sea everywhere, and it's the manual dragging of a 65kg hull uphill that is worth avoiding.
