If my idea is correct, if you apply ever dry to the entire boat, making the boat hydrophobic and put it in the sea, it would be the fastest boat in the world.

No, it wouldn't. There are so many other variables at work.

It would sink because the water doesn't touch the boat, and the boat definitely isn't buoyant in air.

What if the boat is flat @@? You sure on this one my Crunchyroll imouto? Paper + ever dry goes straight to the bottom of the sea?

You seem to be confusing buoyancy with warp drive.

Ya, don't be too critical on the imouto, I wasn't sure myself either @@

Actually it wouldn't sink, hydrophobic would still be creating a force against the water and itd be displacing water and thus float. Initially this might have sounded like a silly question, but actually its not that weird. I bet there is research into this very idea. Submarines have coatings and surface texturing to enhance laminar flow and speed.
but if it will be the fastest boat everh? I don't know. The stuff is kind of like a Teflon coating you can spray on, but doesn't stay all that well. I don't think they put Teflon coatings on race boats, but I could be wrong.

It probably have some interesting properties when react to water, but if bouyancy itself is a stopping force then it is counter intuitive to the whole point I am making. I mean it would have to go through waves and such and those have enough bouyancy pressure to push the boat around.

Are we really debating off his drawn picture I'm laughing
