The reason I was drawn to a light boat was because of proximity to the Adirondacks, and portaging.
That said, most people I know who do a lot of portaging are doing it in the context of longer, multi-day trips so are hauling camping gear. The boat itself can be plenty light being carried. But the weight of the gear in the boat once it is a put back in the boat after the portage is another matter. It takes care of any trim issues.
