Moomba Buys Correct Craft
April 1, 1997

In a deal which shocked industry insiders, officials at Correct Craft
announced today that the entire Nautique line has been purchased by
United Marine Corporation of Tennessee.  United Marine officials said
the Nautique product line will be merged with the company's Moomba label
in an effort both to elevate the status of the Australian born ski boat
line and to "loosen-up" the Nautiques "holier-than-thou" reputation.

No name change is slated for either product line at this time, however
the sticker price on 97 Nautiques is expected to be reduced by
approximately 1/3, bringing the upscale boats price more in line with
market norms.  The Moomba lines per unit price is expected to increase
by $0.10 for the inveterate Boomerang, and $0.12 for the newly released
Outback.

In tandem with today's announcement of the buyout, UMC unveiled their
new corporate slogan, which will be used to market the conjoined ski
boat lines:

"Moomba - The best and worst money can buy."

This looks to me suspiciously like the work of Greg Wait (especially if you
compare the headers with his posts).  Nicely done, Greg!  It made _me_
laugh, anyway.
