Unless your racing, in which case you most likely are not in a plastic boat, why bother? I paddle for exercise as much as anything, so a little extra drag is a good thing. My bottom is really rough, with gouges and every thing else and I really don't care. In fact, my ability to just run it up on shore and not have to worry about it is probably half the reason my fiberglass boat gets paddled so little. As in 3 paddles out of my last 190 paddles has been in my fiberglass boat! Want to buy a very little used Assateague reasonable?
