I'm sorry but anyone who says this is ugly has all their taste in their mouths (with respect).
She may be huge and not as pretty as a Catalina 23 (yeah right) but geez, that's a serious piece of kit. And I bet she's tooling along at a cool 25 knots right there.
If you want to see ugly, have a look at Athena, she's presently under wraps in Auckland for a repaint and refit, you can see she needs it real bad.
Thanks for the loan of the picture BTW.
