An added advantage:  Head position while the sauropod is in the water

For the most part, but if the water actually deep enough and if the sauropod could not raise its neck very much, it might actually submerge the head and it might not be able to navigate as well. In fact, I wonder if this (ability to raise the head/neck enough) would be an argument against sauropods going into deep water...

(not to mention a river current acting against such a broad
body)
