the one thing I thought was apart from a dirty bottom was that you might be loosing a little bit of bang (2mph or so) becayse the Petrol has changed its got more ethanol in in.

Maybe it's everything, petrol, rough hull and softer thicker tubes = more drag.

no prop change

If its not the tubes i think it's the hull

If low compression, would it sound different. Feels like the engine is pushing, just that the boat feels heavy/dragging.
