Re: Peddle boat as tender.

So are we talking about a paddle boat, a pedal boat or something else?

Hobie also sells a tandem inflatable Mirage kayak that looks very usefull for a cruiser. would store well and we have used the regular tandem Mirage for ages and love the way they peddle.

Re: Peddle boat as tender.

I have owned two Hobie Mirage Kayaks, single and double. Not as tenders but for exploring of off coast islands etc. Very sturdy peddle mechanism and finger/thumb steering. Head in to the waves and go! Very stable. In shallow water, just a flicker of the peddles provides propulsion. With a propeller mechanism the prop would be damaged or ripped off in shallow water. Quite a bit of safe stowage, above and below decks. But-- as a tender, you need a yacht big enough to stow it safely.

A "pedal" boat. For those not familiar, like this.

Re: Peddle boat as tender.

How about a water slide of the transom as well? I know my kids would love grandparents that had a pedal boat and water slide.
Cheers
