Re: very strange yacht protuberance

Since the owner has obviously done all the arcane calculations involved in the design of a bulbous bow, my only question is: what is the purpose of the valve? Is it there to adjust the laminar flow characteristics of the bulb?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
