So whats the consensus on oilpanning? Does it really effect the performance of the boat? Maybe by creating more suction? Or is it for the most part just an eyesore? Is there a way to "fix" it? My Dagger Kingpin has already began oilpanning after only about 30 days of paddling.

I fixed the oilcan in my used Super Ego, Boiled up like 5 gal of water poured in the boat supporting both ends. Wedged a board under the cockpit rim and in the seat like a T and let it sit till the water was cool.
That fix lasted a couple of months!!! now its back.
I am not a good enough paddler to tell the difference. And everyone I talk to tells me its cosmetic, Knowing boat design from Sailing I would think at the speeds we go it doesnt matter other than during a flat spin in a longer boat. imo.
Don't do anything, just stand there.
