It's just called a bulbous bow.

I used to have a bulbous bulge at one time, sadly no more......

 

 

... Do you mean you found a slimming diet that works ?

 

 

(lol)

Or was it in your codpiece :$ :D

Did your teacher a school never teach you about the birds and the bees? This bulge is what Daddy ships use to mate with Mummy ships to make baby ships.

 

 

 

Well if that is the case then the mummy ship is going to need an orifice the size of a hippopotomus's yawn :$ :$

 

 

(Don't bother, I know all about my spelling skills)

Watch it Malc, josie might be fishing :-D

 

Why ask Dave (pelmetman) that? All he did was swan around the Caribbean and Chile in a duff destroyer, putting up pelmets around the hammocks (think I said that right) of his mates :D :D

Duff destroyer 8-).........

 

I think my first ship the Devonshire was laid down in 58 the same as me :D................So by the time I'd joined it in 75 it was old in warship terms..............It also seemed to catch fire on a regular basis 8-)

 

Does anyone remember when the Russian warship came to Portsmouth?............... we did the reciprocal trip to Odessa their Black Sea port at the same time............I seem to recall none of our weapon systems were operational (lol)...........not that we used them very often........and when we did we missed :$

 

After that we were mean't to do a 9 month trip out to far East B-).........but got as far as Lisbon when our boiler blew up 8-)...........................You should of seen me go I had my life jacket on and was on the upper deck with one leg over the guard rail faster than you could say "Concordia"..............I'd beat any Italian skipper hands down >:-)

 

I reckon the "M" in HMS on most of my ships mean't McDuff ;-) (lol) (lol)

It was Joanna actually ;-)..........but they decided I was too ugly to be a wren8-)
