Well at the end of the day all really high end feats won't stand up to the critics, but to answer your much do the "heavens" weight? Weight is a measure of gravitational pull, which is just a matter of mass and distance. In this example, the masses are near infinite but so are the distances. There's no way to compute any kind of force without a frame of reference. This is why I said it is an undefined feat. It's like the Hulk punching a hole in reality. How much strength does that take? Who knows?

As for the Thor thing, I'm just going to assume that it was a flying feat. Maybe he was using his flight power to keep the boat from moving. Otherwise, it's just plain silly. Of course it is a comic book.
