Boundary layer drag

Here's a thought (happened while I was on the can)...

We're dealing with really low RE's, and I'm just wondering whether there is any benefit in going for a slighty rougher finish on our aircraft to reduce boundary layer drag.

Has anyone got any ideas whether I'm barking up the wrong applecart?

Perhaps using mylars isn't the best way to get the most out of our wings.
