I think it makes you faster, because you can see where your going and keep it wide open. Wouldn't be able to ride in the winter around here with out it. I stay nice and dry now.

I think I remember seeing a picture of Kerry Hibdon's ski and it had one on it...If so, it can't hurt speed too much

I can't see how it would affect speed. It's not in the water at WOT.

The sponson deal was discussed a while back and I think that the conclusion was that the sponsons get you started on a good flat run so it doesnt start to bounce and then they come out of the water, but noone cant really tell you if they have an aerodynamic effect or not once they are out of the water. The only way that I can see a splash guard slowing you down is if it has an effect on how the air flows around the front of the hull. I think you would have to FULLY understand both hydrodynamics and aerodynamics to come to a solid conclusion. I comprehend both but dont FULLY understand either. Just my .02

I say we all go to the water, with a big ole piece of cardboard duct taped to the front and test it back to back !!!
