Still need to use the other hand to steady it as moving so not 1 handed as such.

More comfortable grip though by the look of it!

Trust me pal you regret it years down the line same as carrying 2 bags at a time!

If full house i get lab in to load each room. I don’t do much boarding tho. But when doing it i never carry 1. Might regret it one day but if forms good don’t see problem. Same as gym

And two sheets of board were taped together at the ends. Always loaded in joined together.
Did there used to be 10' x 5' boards as well or was that just plywood?

Remember the coal man delivering the coal with that huge sack on his back held on with a hand over his shoulder. That must have been 1 cwt or more?

Carrying that many in 1 go would now give me instant tennis elbow and would struggle for the rest of the week.

Wouldn't have given it a 2nd thought when I was younger.

Pulled a muscle last time I carried 8x4 12.5mm boards. I'm nearly 50 so I'll be making a board carrier from old saw. Brilliant.

Jesus, how many was you carrying?
But 5 on transit connect roof and something popped lifting one. Luckily my left arm though. Really need to warm up and stretch in the morning. Humans are the only animals not to do this I heard once.

That’s what I meant about form. I know exactly how you did it, probably sliding the first sheet off and it gripped. It’s an unnatural movement

Hence a lack of days off work with wrist strain
