The London Model Railway Group did one of the Port Stanley Incline Railway.

I just saw a photograph of an inclined ways, where the boat sits sideways on two cradles running on railroad tracks. A chain is payed out to let the boat cradles go down the track into the water, or pulled in to bring the cradles back up the grade. Even if the slope is not constant, you could mount the cradle on the trucks so that it pivots to maintain a horizontal position as it goes up and down the slope.
