A small boat holding two or three persons and operated by pedalling, suitable for calm bodies of water such as ponds in parks. For example, on the Serpentine in Hyde Park, in London.

The traditional cry to recall such things after their hour's hire is "Come in, number nine, your time is up".

-- "We've only got eight boats."

-- "Number six, are you in trouble?"
