Up the mast on the hard?

My yard has no lifts or any equipment other than a tug to put the boat in thier cradles in and out of the water. its a real throw back to the do it yourself era. Assuming proper use of the bosuns chair with two halyards can i ask is the issue that the keel n hull are not in the water thus only supported by the four jack pads on the cradle and the keel on blocks? What im saying isexplain to me in engineering terms how it differs from going up with the boat in the water?
I weigh 155lbs
