Not actually built one but a model I have looked at closely over last few years and I was lead to believe it was stuck around it, I don't think you have to cut the hull? and I would think if you did it would leave a weak spot on the hull as the slightest bump up front could dislodge it


but that is only my opinion, hope you find out a definitive answer


Cheers
Paul
