The English Channel Pedal Boat

This is the water craft that set a Guinness World Record for the fastest pedal-powered crossing of the English Channel. Possessing superior nautical qualities that enabled navigation through the Channel’s notoriously inhospitable waters, its ballasted keel provides superior stability in windy conditions for up to three passengers (for a total of 525 lbs.). Its self-righting, durable rotomolded polyethylene hull cuts through chop for a smooth ride. Drawing 1' 8" of water, allowing paddling into shallows, it is suitable as a tender for transportation to an offshore boat, or as a way to explore a calm bay or lake. The boat has a quiet, smooth pedal crank that drives a 16" two-bladed propeller, providing a hull speed of 5 1/4 mph. Stopping and reverse are accomplished by pedaling backward. The rudder is controlled by a hand levers located on the right side of the cockpit, providing easy and effective turning. A protective windshield and high freeboard guard against wind, waves, and water sprays, and the form-fitting recumbent seat is adjustable and fully padded for extra comfort. Ample storage space is located underneath the rear seat, and bungee cords in the bow hold towels, cameras, or food and beverages. A transom platform built into the stern allows for easy re-entry after swimming. It has a built-in manual bilge pump and a collapsible, marine-grade woven acrylic bimini top. 12' 2" L x 4' W x 54 3/4" H. (325 lbs.) ($600)
