The worst case boundary layer thickness (assuming turbulent from the front, altitude 100m) might be about 12mm at 200mph, and about 18mm at 25mph.

I would think you would get some laminar flow at low AoA, so the boundary layer should be thinner than that at speed. I doubt the boundary layer will be much of an issue in any case.
