    Can I use Holtrop method to predict the resistance of bare hull without bulbous bow? Or is there any other method like Holtrop to predict the resistance of such hull forms?

    Any help or information would be appreciated.

    Check yourself if your hull is within the limits that the Holtrop-Mennen method itself sets. Of course, a hull without bulb can be calculated by that method if the above is fulfilled.
