They've stuck a bulbous bow on her since I worked aboard her.

'Stuck on' is an apt description! It would be interesting to know the reasons for this appendage and to what extent it achieved the design objectives. I imagine it would be about efficient passage making. Is this a typical 'fix' for dredges?
