in that 26 year old article in Sea Kayaker Magazine I mentioned before: "There is a school of thought that believes that flexible skins make possible a delay in the transition from laminar to turbulent flow, and with this delay a consequent lowering of the hydrodynamic resistance." So maybe we got it all wrong on demanding stiffer boats?
