My ships are run under the British system utilized during the Age of Sail. Decks are scrubbed daily - weather permitting, repairs made immediately, and the hull scraped, repaired, and painted regularly and for special occasions. With EVA suits, repairs can be made while in transit and without a shipyard. Unfortunately, the effects of keelhauling are minimized.
Hull damage, barnacles, and other fouling create unacceptable drag, problems with trim and balance and combat fitness. Therefore it cannot be allowed to exist for any length of time.
But yeah, it would be kinda neat to have such skins, though I doubt they would be cost effective for Cryptic.
