I pulled my Atomic 4 with my rigging and it was about that weight. I took the hallyard down to the mid boom and attached a come along to the hallyard for better control. The important thing is to use the boom only to push the hallyard outboard not jhold any load. If you attach the hallyard to the boom then the load to the boom you'll break the boom. In your case I think you might be able to do it with a spinnaker pole and jib hallyard but it would be problematic landing the load on you foredeck, whereas with the boom you could land it in your cockpit.
