I always heard that waxing the bottom slows you down

It might, but no stains.

It's resting on foam blocks at the point where the supports are under the deck.

I always looked at it as: It may be faster for a little while but eventually (and it happens quicker then you may think) the growth slows you down more. My brother is a very competitive sailboat racer and he has this jelly stuff he puts on the hull.

Just like servicing some women, much easier when you turn them over.

I , so far, have only run in fresh water, but, after leaving the boat in the water overnight it does stain the hull. I will give up a couple of mph to have a clean boat.
