 Ships resistance

"In general there are two types of boundary layers: the laminar and the turbulent. The laminar boundary layer is a nice smooth boundary layer. Very close to the hull its speed is 0 and the farther away from the hull the higher the speed becomes, until it reaches the ship speed. This laminar flow has a low frictional loss, but is not easy to maintain when it gets thicker. "
