Real boat shoes? They are usually canvas and light so are water resistant but also do dry quickly. Traditionally they have non-marking white sole rubber soles these give better grip on wet surfaces (rubber soles on traditional shoes once again are scored which aids in grip). You don't need them it is just a choice.

Replace an actuator on my boat trailer.

You may be able to tow without the surge brakes. A lot depends on the weight of the tow vehicle and its stopping ability. The trailer brakes may be leaking on the trailer brake shoes. This may cause the linings to swell and lock up.

You can make the brakes inoperative by putting a bolt through the moving parts and converting it to a solid tonque. There may be legal regulations about operating it on a highway without the safety device.
Not much is inspected in my area, but your insurance may be void if you have an accident.

How to unlock a hydraulic boat trailer actuator?

Hello there.
Just a brief overview first.
The hydraulic system is a basic setup. A master cylinder is pushed when the tow vehicle slows applying pressure through a brake line to wheel cylinders mounted in a backing plate. This pressure pushes out a piston in the wheel cylinder which in turn pushes out a brake shoe against the drum. If it has disc brakes it also pushes a piston out squeezing the pads on the rotor.
So what needs to be figured out is what is applying the brakes.
1. The master cylinder is stuck rearward and not allowing pressure release.
2. The wheel cylinder or caliper piston is stuck and not backing off keeping pressure on the friction shoe or pad.
3. The friction pad or shoe is rusted to the surface of the drum or rotor and not allowing wheel to turn.
4. The friction material has fallen apart and jammed up inside the drum.

If the master cylinder is stuck, get a new one. Really common for water to get inside them and rust the cylinder bore.
If the caliper or wheel cylinder is siezed it will be a replacement as well.
If you do have drum brakes you may need to back of the adjuster wheel through the slot in the lower inside of the backing plate to get the drum off.
If the friction is rusted to the drum or rotor sometimes a few swings with a hammer is enough to break them free (wear safety glasses!)
If they are rusted it still would be a good idea to pull them apart and clean them up.
The 4th scenario is also a take the drum off repair. Install new shoes and while there check out the wheel cylinders, no use putting on new shoes if they don't work.

Also be a good idea to flush the old brake fluid. Over time brake fluid absorbs water and rusts components in the system.And if you need to pull the wheels have a look at the wheel bearings too.

Hope this leads you to getting your trailer road worthy.
