a bulb be integral with the hull component ?
What is the best way of representing a bulb :
a) Including the offsets of the bulb in the hull component;
b) Having the bulb as a separate component of the hull?
It is usually best to have a bulbous bow as a separate component.
You can FIT the bulb to the hull. If you have a tank which occupies
the bulb and hull both, you can fit it both to the bulb and the
hull. For example,
ENDS -20, 10
DISPLAY sometimes has difficulty showing the gap between
the bulb and the stem when the bulb is not a separate component.

in the section above the bulb and below the stem. (Adding SHELL
thickness to the hull will also add it in this region.) If there
is zero width in this region, you can get DISPLAY to show the bulb
properly by using the /BULB parameter; i.e.
