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.
