Kind of a random find, but I was reading the August 1989 issue of Popular Science (found it on my dad's shelf) about a new tri-hull ship design, and came to this page after learning about how its propeller mount used "turbulators" to smooth water flow into the propeller. Those turbulators seem to take the form of small spikes protruding from a surface. Any idea whether it's relevant to this article? Cctoide 01:22, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
