Re: Epoxy: Aluminum Powder
In Response To: Re: Epoxy: Aluminum Powder ()

I asked the West engineers about any additives making a hull faster, and they said aside from keeping the hull clean and polished, Pledge furniture polish is the only thing that seemed to make a difference. I don't know how true that is, but given articles about other substances there is a chance it might be somewhat valid.

If you search a lot on the internet... this article seems to be the one to look to for answers as far as hull treatments and construction materials making your kayak faster.
