A neat Kayak power system

Just got back to the boat as these two guys launched their kayak.

In goes the pedal mechanism

Slip your feet in


and away you go.



 Hobie Mirage Drive System


You pedal by stepping alternately left and right, not unlike an exercise stepper, to drive two underwater flippers. They work much like a penguin's fins to propel the Hobie Mirage with surprising speed and ease. All of which lets you go into kayaking feet first.



All very neat but at a price.

Give it go! ;) The only thing I didn't like about the Hobie set up is that it is not water tight it floats but you are almost sitting in eater as there are holes directly through where those fins go in. Might be fine on a large clean lake or slow moving stream but I wouldn't want to sit in canal water!

Hi Budds
He`ll do anything for you.
Be nice to sit back with a glass of something and just pedal.
