I remember on a flight from LAX to FRA on Lufthansa, the visibility was well under a mile. The pilots did an ILS onto the runway, but I remember that it was raining, and the airport was quite wet, and when we landed, the pilots put on max thrust reverse, and we were on thrust reverse longer than I have ever experienced; I still remember...it was spectacular. You could barely see out the window because of the low visibility, and we landed, possibly a little fast, and it took a while to stop, but I remember the engine spooling out mist and water from its engine during the thrust reverse, mist was flying out everywhere around the engine, and for a good while too. Then we took the last exit from the runway and taxied to our gate. BEST landing I have ever experienced, one I will never forget. I mean, no one made a big deal about it, to everyone else, it was just a normal landing, but from a window view, it was amazing.
But yeah, pretty dumb for the QF pilots not to use reverse thrust during wet conditions. It doesnt cause skidding by the way (as I read above), common sense tells you that it is braking that causes skidding, and eventually, hydro(aqua)planing. Oh yeah, and the captain shouldn't have took over the plane when the F/O already decided for the go-around, for safety's sake, he should have just went with it.
