Do oilcanning/dents really matter?
Quick question that a google search turned up no results for: Does oil canning and/or dents really matter?
I'm not quite sure that it does. I can see people asking how to remove them, and I often see people selling or inquiring about boats and mentioning a lack of oil canning... but does it really matter? Does it affect speed, how a boat surfs... any of it?
I haven't been able to notice a difference at all from new to beat down on the boats I've paddled... but what has your experience been? What do the slalom kayakers have to say?
