Unique Quality

Cool calm and collected, Scotty is usually in the middle of the bus getting instruction or info from all directions. Processing this and doing what needs to be done (at the right time) is key to getting these boats around the track in tidy shape. Concentrated on the task at hand but Scotty always maintains a good level of humour.
