I had a friend who was buying his first boat. He and his wife had settled on a boat that has the reputation of being an "ugly duckling". I told him to walk down the dock, turn around and look at the boat. If he didn't think it was the best looking boat on the dock, he should reconsider. He called me a few days later, horrified at how close he came to buying the ugliest boat on the dock. He said all they really looked at was the great interior and never really looked at the boat from the outside.
