The area between the rest ot the other deck- and hull bottom areas and substantially the displaced area or areas is gradually stepped. Alternatively, the area between the displaced deck- and/or hull bottom area or areas at the openings in the ship and the rest of the deck- and/or hull bottom areas can be stepped in one or more steps, or be shaped as an approximately linear or arcuate junction.
