NeverWet Super-Hydrophobic use with RIBs?

Not sure if anyone has heard of it but there is a new product that has just been released which is essentially a liquid repelling spray. The best way to understand it is to watch this video

I doubt anyone would be an expert on this but would you think it would be theoretically possible to spray this stuff onto the hull of a boat to reduce friction to give a slight performance increase?
I know I can think of many other uses for this such as on windscreens or seats, has anyone else got any good suggestions. I might be ordering some shortly to play around with.

The current version (to be released soon) is not suitable for transparent materials as it leaves "a frosty haze".

They intend to address this issue. The resultant product would be a very good replacement for Rain-X
