    Yeah, I saw that Jim, but it's not actually bulbous. It's more of a standard fat hull with a big dent in the stem just above the waterline. It certainly made me wonder though. It's too bad the 1/2 on each side would be so expensive to tank test. There have been some that don't extend way out forward but still alter the bow wave enough to enhance efficiency. I expect that the shape shown is meant to do the same, and that a whole lot of money went into development.
