Have you tried raising the boards at all? If they are able to be raised up into their cases, then a flattened or splayed board is probably not a culprit.
Did the boat "pull" to one side at all, or does it feel balanced and symmetrical tracking straight, etc?
While I expressed concern about why the boards were left down and the possible results, I doubt they could slow the boat so much. As I indicated, I could make 4.2 knots with a big drogue.
It is also possible (probable?) that it is several of the suggested causes and one more that we have not thought of.
