[bolger] Humpback whales and Vindication
I have long thought that the shark is one of the fastest movers in the sea,
and its skin is very rough, so why do our boats have to have a surface like
a piano top?
I seem to remember an article in Yachting Monthly some 40 years ago, which
reckoned that a matt paint finish on a hull made for a faster boat than one
done out with gloss paint.
