She was a beautiful ship, but rode like a dog in any beam sea. One learned pretty quick how to wrap ones legs and arms around the bunk supports if you didn't want to end up on the deck everytime she rolled. The configeration of the two funnels made her appear to be a larger radar contact than she actually was. The new single funnel greatly reduced her signature. NGS in the Canadian Navy died when they got rid of her 5"54.
