 Bulbous bow. Probably not helping much at this speed and draft. How do they work? "Although much is known about the bulb, much of its functions are still in dispute. To say that on a hydrodynamic level the destructive interference of the primary and secondary wave trains causes an overall reduction in drag which is beneficial to the vessels resistance characteristics would be true. A bit of a mouth full, but true! Or on a more physical level, that the water coursing over the top of the bulb is exerting a downward pressure that is keeping the stern from squatting, thereby allowing flatter trim, causing the vessel to run with less resistance. Still others would argue the finer points of laminar flow, with no clear conclusions. In any case, it is a fact that bulbs do work and in some cases reduce resistance as much as 25%." Thanks to Diesel Duck for this info.
