Even if we assume weight, the generalizations have not sufficient basis: It is well known that narrow boats have to have more lead as they have less form stability (which in itself is a generalization, agreed).

Narrow boats have their charm, without any question. I have had several . Fat boats have other charms.

But I do not see the need for sweeping generalizations, looking down at this or that brand. We all make our choises, most often these are comprimizes.
