torpedo shaped bulb
Explanation:
dovrebbe essere il bulbo (tipico delle barche a vela)a forma di siluro.

The torpedo-shaped bulb, according to Everest Horizontal's designer, Jim Antrim of Antrim Associates Naval Architects in California, keeps the ship upright and weighed 4,200 pounds. It was attached to the bottom steel fin, the keel, which weighed 1,900 pounds. Without the counterweight, the boat became a bathtub toy in two minutes.
