I took another pic of this vessel, which shows the bulbous bow from a better angle.

What intrigued me was - at no time in steady transit, is the bulb completely immersed......... ?

It makes me think that the bulb is a later addition - and is purely to alter the effective length of the waterplane (hence causing a better interaction between bow and stern wave) rather than actually reducing the bow-wave?

Anyone know for sure?
