    I was Considering waxing the bottom of my laser to squeeze out that extra knot, but when I
    went to the boat club and started talking about it some people said that wax actually slows
    down a dingy and is mostly used on cruising keel boats for looks. Is this true or just an urban myth, and what do you guys do to make your hull it's best?

    Thanks.

    I read that site before too when I was having trouble with my decision to wax my friend's boat or not.
