    will this give you speed gains

    This maybe a cheap way to gain a few mph as this will minimise drag if used on hull or just ride plate??

    I don't know if you can get speed gains.
    But I've seen something similar that you put on phones to water proof them.

    would this have a similar effect as people sanding their hulls?

    I think this is the material they are using on the new plungers that water won't stick to. Pretty cool but not sure how long it would last because on the plungers they say not to touch the material or it will diminish its life.

    there is a guy that posted a youtube video after applying "neverwet" to his RC boat. the gps on the RC boat reported a slower time with the neverwet on the hull.

    I think this stuff would have the same effect as waxing your hull. Donít do it. You will scrub off speed fur shur. I remember it has to do with surface tension and the example of a golf ball was used. Something about the dimples breaking the friction points on the surface of the ball allowing it to slip through the air better. Same applies to your hull, ride plates and such.
