If you think a Blaze is heavy, try helping with a YW Dayboat - just the centreboard (9.5mm steel) weighs as much as some boats and the total weight without trolley is minimum 204.3 kilos. Makes even the Albacore a lightweight in comparison!

You would think all sealed cavities on planes would be vacuums where strong enough and helium elsewhere.

The pursuit of ever lighter craft has kept me in the game.

A jockey wheel on my trailer and a wheeled sailing bag have meant I can carry on sailing. And a well balanced launching trolley.

Exactly Peaky, having injured myself pulling a boat out of the water the trolley makes all the difference. You are not 'lifting' the boat but moving it around.
