Some people are like Slinkys. Completely useless, but they do bring a smile to your face when pushed down a set of stairs.

We have never hired from UCC but I always admire their boats as they go by. They havea pleasingly traditional look (some, I believe, are 20 or so years old), and some of them even have delightful-sounding Norwegian Sabb engines.

Ours did and, I know what you mean about their sound
And the forward and reverse lever seperate to the throttle
Felt like you were on a real boat (if you know what I mean)
We loved the trip
Even though it rained most of the time
Definitely worth a look :)
