I work in a warehouse . With anything over 32 kg we are requested to get help but not restricted to doing this . Therefore as we are not given back the time for getting help , everyone lifts them on their own. And this is not in a little back street company, this is in the main warehouse of multi national car manufacturer.

Pipe lagging or a cradle ?
Would a cradle be used for wooden or plastic boats ?

When you can't work due to back issues, do they tell you you should have got help lifting?

Any employer will tell you, we live in a litigious H&S age, where staff have all sorts of rights to 'injury at work' claims and we have insurances and have to have risk assessments, lines drawn between what can be lfited with and without mechanical assistance and trust me, you are asking for trouble insisting on staff lifting stuff over the guidelines. Certain things have to be palletised and moved with pallet trucks and fork lifts etc.

Why are we even arguing this, it's a matter of public record, it's also a fact that the maximum weight baggage handlers could lift was reduced from 32 kilos to 25.

The reason it doesn't affect us as dinghy sailors is because we do it voluntarily and nobody forces us to do it, but I wouldn't want to be the owner of some plastic tub operating sailing school and or holiday outfit or face the insurance cost.

The trolley is mechanical assistance though. A well balanced trolley can make the boat almost weightless to lift and decent wheels (not that any seem to exist) will reduce how hard it is to pull (or push). Empty road bases, on the other hand, are back breakingly heavy to lift.

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.

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

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