If the difference in drag is significant, the result can be determined experimentally. If the difference in drag cannot be determined experimentally, then it isn't worth worrying about.

Collect enough data to have confidence, do the math, and see what you come up with on your boat. This will give you something to do other than drinking beer on long reaches.
