The Bowsprit is a rocket part in Pikmin. The Bowsprit is the "face" of the Dolphin designed by Captain Olimar and gives the Dolphin its sleek shape. It has a remarkable resemblance to a Poké Ball when looked at from the top.
 Collecting the Part
Getting it requires many steps. First, defeat all Bulbears and Puffy Blowhogs that will be in the way back to the ship. There are two paths to get to it: either cross the fire geysers near the Beetle or take the safe route near the landing site by building the twig and unplugging the geyser. Then defeat the Beetle and retrieve the part. Build the bridge and destroy the gate so Red Pikmin can carry it back to the Dolphin, defeating the Shearwigs along the way.

With this piece installed, my ship should regain some of its sleek shape.
The so-called face of the Dolphin. In point of fact, I designed it."
