Topping lift loads?

Hi everyone. As our boat nears splash day, one of our last projects is the topping lift. Could anyone tell me if the loads on a topping lift are ever significant? I am buying the blocks for it and my mind tells me the loads are essentially lifting the boom, but is there ever a time where there are more? Light wind you could use the lift while sailing for additional draft but the stresses would be very light no?

Any thoughts? Thanks again. You have all made this maintenance/update season much easier. I owe you all a beverage!

EDIT: Oh yeah, that would be on a Mac 25.
