You would think all sealed cavities on planes would be vacuums where strong enough and helium elsewhere.

If you think a Blaze is heavy, try helping with a YW Dayboat - just the centreboard (9.5mm steel) weighs as much as some boats and the total weight without trolley is minimum 204.3 kilos. Makes even the Albacore a lightweight in comparison!

Admiral Trailers Phantom trolley
The combination of open box sections and solid wheels means it sinks. Works a treat at Lee on Solent SC 2019 
No I don't work for them just please with my purchase.

Trident say their Laser Trolley is 26kg.

That Optiparts trolley sounds like the biz for a Streaker (you could probably shorten it and make it lighter still!).  I've seen Admiral steel Streaker trolleys being sold at 295, i.e. dearer.

Does anybody have experience of the Optiparts alu trolley?
