anti stuff

i see both sunseeker xs and some fabio designs utilise an "anti-stuff" nose. what the hell is one of them then, and surely it would fling the boat sky high in a head sea if its what i think it is!!

Well its quite simply an enlarged version of the old Vics Synus Nasal Spray. that is bolted to the front of the boat to increase bouyancy at the critical end.
