I was playing around with this when I noticed something odd, when I thought of giving the hull some shrapnel protection the required main belt to cover engine and magazines are longer than the ship and yet no construction warning appeared, a known bug?

These two statements are related, I think. Make the hull wider, which lets you get more of the equipment and stuff under the waterline. Should help.

What do you mean by "construction warning"? Something like, "If you build it, it will go up like a Fillopine candle"?

And Brock's right, the reason the belt doesn't cover the machine/magazine spaces is that they are so large on such a narrow hull that they are above the armored deck. Kinda like the boilers on the original Lexington class BCs.

Generally I interpret it as "my engines don't fit in my ship" and a sign that I need to reduce speed.

One fun and easy way to do this is to take a high speed cruiser design and add a 1mm+ torpedo bulkhead. Since it adds interior voids, it squishes the machinery spaces out of at least the citadel and sometimes the hull. Often the lack of interior room means there is no benefit and sometimes a loss of torpedo resistance.

The % Hull below water is as RA explains, critical stuff sticking up. When one is armoring such a ship, one needs to remember to have a taller belt as a result, beyond protected flotation concerns.
