Mmm, I think you're right Robertcateran; I'd forgotten to consider the inertia. (but then, the mono's heavier scantlings could... nah, that's silly.) I concede the point.
But considering how *fat* some of the monos are, I don't think you can give them "smaller target" either.
On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog anchored in a coral atoll.
