If you do use something that has a wooden back, I would seal it with penetrating epoxy.

A slab of stone, 100-200 lbs (or more?) of added weight, several feet above the boat's ballast and maybe off-center.

Does anyone else see a problem here?

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
