We keep a 650# Boston Whaler (includes the motor) up on the boat deck. It is an easy one person job to launch and takes about 5 Minutes. I can put it up top myself but it is much easier with a helper. Operating the crane. The issue is not the lifting, it's the aligning it properly in the chocks that is the PITA. I will say that with practice we are getting better and faster at doing that. There is no perceptible difference in roll from when we had a 27# inflatable up there.
