  The math is not so simple

Wenonah does not specify waterline lengths. The Argosy is a sub 14 foot boat. Those stem layouts are extreme. They do not count for hull speed.

Its a small boat. It does OK on week long trips if you pack light.

Now for your rivers..if there much close navigating to be done the Wilderness will probably need to be heeled to free the ends. And Wenonahs typical hull shape requires care in that..the max width is low down, so there is loss of secondary when heeled fairly quickly. I don't think Wenonahs were designed to be heeled.
