Waxing kayaks

I was just wondering if anyone ever puts a coat of wax on their boats as a final finish? It makes a very slick finish on woodwork as well as adding just a bit more protection. Water would bead up and the boat might be hard to grab ahold of when it is wet but it sure would be pretty. just wondering, Steve.
