Hull polish is degading with time ?

I seem to get little different speeds in game compared to the toxcct polars. Just figured that when I remove option "hull polish" the speeds are much closer. Anyone else experience this or has the polish just been washed off my boat.

I may not be accurate.
Which race ?

I would imagine VR's using Starbrite, the premium marine polish, applied by a competent boatright. Don't trust your crew to do a top job, use a pro.

If you have clipped something in the water, and chipped the coat, it is possible at the speeds we are doing that your hull might be delaminating below the water line.

Have you checked your foils for seaweed?

I am not seeing a Hull Polish option in the Clipper race chart (when I right-click on the desktop version or select the Menu dropdown on the mobile version) Is hull polish factored in if Full Pack is selected? Or is the benefit so negligible that it does not affect the possible boat position over a certain amount of time so zezo just ignores it?

Hull polish is factored in if Full Pack is selected, but it is very unlikely that it would affect your routing anyway.
