Nice try. Watch the video of the actual special. I'm pretty sure they didn't have a giant crane to put the stones onto the boats without capsizing too, right? This is nonsense beyond the papyrus showing how they moved the stones down the river.

The best way to move a stone would be to keep it submerged under water and let the buoyancy of the stone make it lighter to lift. The weight of the stone would be reduced by the weight of the water the stone displaced. Boats could still be used to float the stone as long as it's kept underwater. Even dragging the stone by ropes would be made easier if the stone was submerged.
