I have two Scupper Pros here

both weigh the same. Hulls still stiff and original shape. ... One is hammered and totally gouged up in every direction on the entire hull ..I.E. like it wallowed on oyster beds. In this case it was lava + other razor sharp sea stuff. The other is relatively untouched ... Its pretty EZ to tell which one is which by the glide and effort it takes to move them through the water.
I guess some people might not notice this but others will.
If you have a rough hull or one with huge print through from using roving for example ... smoothing it out will make it faster. One might not 'notice it' but it WILL lower drag.

Willie, I gotta figure you are talking about the 3M stuff here 'cause wetsanding is not gonna get anyone DQed in any race.
