Re: very strange yacht protuberance

Anyway, the upshot was that these bulbous proboscises had something to do with braking up the bow wake and making the boat more efficient.

I wonder if it has the same effect on a sailing vessel. I would imagine so.
And you are thinking these guys did all the math required to make this happen?
I should shut up, it is the GENERAL Ironside and that looks like a missile gantry on the foredeck.
