It's big; but not so big you can't manhandle it or move it with paddle.

Well, a big paddle!
Hehe...pretty much the same concerns I have right now in the couple weeks before we splash our 7.9 for the first time...almost exactly the same displacement difference too. Glad to know that it isn't too bad!
