I keep the hull waxed to keep it /make it easier to clean as opposed to anything else ,,,,,, it also slows down the critter growth for the 3 weeks it sits in the water on Paxos. Still need to clean them off every 4 days after a dive though to prevent the 'weed' getting a real hold.
Clean and shiny looks good too !
Now, if I wanted speed I'd take a ball pien hammer and bash a few dimples into the gelcoat
