I don't know about the attitude that any boat will work. Sounds like someone who has never been out at sea!!!!! Even on a lake there are remarkable differences in boats. I have watched the Catalina 22s getting beat upwhile my Pearson is just beginning to get lively. Even if a light boat doesn't fall aprt it will beat up it's occupants more than a heavy boat. Many ideals just don't hold up when you do a reality check. A few hundred miles off shore is a bad place to findout that your boat does poorly in big waves and high winds!!!!!
