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?

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!"
