the question in my mind remains, is there a difference in laminar/near laminar flow at 10 knots vs. all turbulent flow at 70mph.
therefore the physics may be different for a performance boat vs. a sailboat. Meaning the multiple articles like Jon's on sailing may not apply to fast boats??

I say
make a run and record speed
set the boat on a washing rack, and get two buddies and a six pack and sand like mad,
make another run
put it back on the rack and polish it back out, and make a third run
