A little literary inspiration:
CUTWATER : noun 1) the most forward part of a ship; 2) a projecting sharp portion of a bridge or pier abutment designed to reduce the force of flowing water
... her flattened mammae, in sympathy with this tormented eructation of countenance, had put forth cutwaters and were rowelling her corsage.
- Beckett, "A Wet Night," More Pricks than Kicks, p. 61.
