I also have the rack on mine, and it sounds about the same weight. I usually stuff the lead cable into the board rack so it doesn't bang around. Hold it like a Roman spear, one hand lower than the other. Stick it through the hole in the bimini, and swap your hand to the other side. I was leary the first time too, but it is manageable. Removing is worse, and you're usually sore from all the watersports during the day :-)

I also saw you wanted to fold it back with the pole installed. I do this occasionally, but it definitely isn't ideal. I thought about getting a rigid pole for the rear bimini to support it while laying back, but never have. Good choice on the pylon, we love ours.

Check out Johnson Bimini (google will take you right there) A good pic of a fly high and zippered bimini. We have a fly high with a rack and a Johnson Bimini.....we can take the board rack on and off easily so we choose to do that.....than feed the pole in from either the top or below. If your rack is fixed ...as others have said, feed it in from the top.
