I've seen several photos of crewmen "riding the nose". It must have been great!

Earl: I have straddled the bull nose many times on our way out to patrol from Green Island to New Britain New Ireland. It has to be a pretty calm sea. I would get my 45 automatic and shoot at flying fish as they were scared out of the water. Don't think I ever hit one. Lots of fun though for a kid. Uncle sam furnished all the ammunition we wanted. We made that run a lot from March until Nov '44. Traveling west on that run I saw many beautiful South Pacific sunsets.
