      So it would appear a once beautiful and valued sail training vessel and
      replica is being turned into a travesty of a tasteless nonsailing
      Hooters-type bar with a boxing kangaroo figurehead (!) and an 'authentic'
      crow's nest that 'every 18th C vessel had'. Poor Richard Bailey. And what
      John Millar must be thinking I can't imagine. Better to imagine her as she
      once was, mates, and raise a glass to what she gave us all. She deserved
      better than this....

      Yours aye
