I don't really get the point. Maybe for racing, I could justify any minute performance gain, if any, but then I wouldn't be using a plastic hull for racing, anyway. If I wasn't racing, I wouldn't care. As always, YMMV.
Of course, if it makes you feel better about your kayak, and you like to keep your gear well-maintained, why not?
