Dave-
For a quick test you can just take a railmeat, hook'em up to the halyard and practice. Swinging that much mass around in any wind could be interesting. Lifting that much weight, no problem if you plan ahead and use a winch or add a block and tackle (snatch block) for added purchase if need be.
