Production costs for polished finish are higher.(Especially with fins) Difference is perhaps that small that for 99% of sailors its irrelevant but knocks 50 or so off board.

Perhaps Martin Van Meurs might have done 50 .5 knots had he had a polished fin ??? Who knows ???

Evidence is there . It definitely suggests polished is best. Theories are wrong though ! (Sometimes)
