Step one. Find can of worms.
Step two. Open can of worms.
Step three. Watch all of the worms exit can.

No need for slick bottom now....just take that huge can of worms and tape to bow and let the worms fall in front of the boat lol. Probably better than a sprayer system. Seriously though I'm probably going to try the Quick Slick when I remove my poly.

There are numerous coatings out there,, check price and ease of application. I only have personal experience with Quickslick. IMHO I don't see how any slick bottom could be any better than quickslick. That stuff is extremely slick and extremely hard. But,, like they say,, slick bottoms are like opinions. Only yours really count. :)
