Well I read it again and the author gives no evidence that boundary layer is thicker on a wet-sanded surface. Moreover where is that thickness measured from? Top or bottom? Regarding friction drag, matt is of course rougher than polished but does it make a sensible difference? We're not talking about mountains here. The question is more about wet or not, and how the hull will glide on a mix of air bubbles and water. But go polish everything. I'm quite curious to hear if you go any faster. Hello Tiesda, do you have an idea?
