It seems to me that making the statement that OB weigh less isn't as true as it might seem when you consider that you have to add a generator and/or solar panels, water heater, and carry more fuel.
Still may be less, but might be more of a wash than one might think.
These days descent solar panel capacity is pretty basic and should not be considered an add-on although as yet the major French manufacturers haven't got it yet but will get there. 750W to 1kw is so easyand thesedays relatively cheap
to implement at build time on any multihull
