I couldn't agree more. Although my first reaction to Larry's version of the Coot was perhaps similar to someone spray painting graffiti on a Picasso.

I wonder how it would look with hydrofoils?

Noble Kings and Princes bow whenever he came, Pirate ships lower their flags when Coot roars out its name. Suspicious!
Maybe someone down in the design shop was "over-compensating" ifyaknowwhatimean!

After making a prolonged signal upon approaching the marina, some people expect to see a ship but only see the Coot's mast on the other side of the marina's breakwater at low tide. Or if only hearing the horn, "what the hell was that!"
