Thought for the day...

Q: are low friction bottom coatings or bottom paints legal?

A: This is covered by RRS R 53; 53 SKIN FRICTION 
A boat shall not eject or release a substance, such as a polymer, or 
have specially textured surfaces that could improve the character of 
the flow of water inside the boundary layer. 

--From the pages of the IOM ICA Forum...Does anyone remember the "riblets" on Stars & Stripes '87? This is the "anti-riblets rule"!
