Well, you object to the Arocarka speep boost do to areodynamics in space.
Extra rigging (sails and the like) for extra manuverability. Those sails and
the like also interact aeodynamically for the manueverability bonus.

Or you can't. You've confused weight with Volume, and now you're talking
about stripping, which affects volume not at all, just weight and
manueverability. Volume remains the same.

Any vehicle handles better if it's actual weight is reduced. Planes, cars,
boats, ships, etc.
