maybe he means faster...8,000 pounds of boat,,add humans and lots of gear...supplies,water,gasoline...that's a sturdy 10,000 pounds of boat now at launching but it's not going anywhere too fast probably...it's all relative though...often your waiting for perfect weather windows with a fast,lightly built boat
A boat like this you dont need perfect weather window so your sailing while the guy with the lighter faster boat may be sipping beers and burning time and money in a Holiday Inn with a bad TV..... is it a slower boat in that situation?...You might say it's not...despite the listed hull speed difference.
