That's where SIZ comes in, which is also a component of damage bonus.
A more massive character will budge less.
I think the virtual armour takes care of the damage issue rather well.
Damage bonuses should still apply, but the drag of the water is best
modelled as armour. If anything, I should think STR and SIZ would be
MORE important underwater, so I'd almost be tempted to exempt damage
bonuses from the virtual armour.
