    Beautiful, but also a bit fanciful in a setting of tidal current and brisk winds, eh?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    French, now available with power assist, like an e-bike.

    Not sure how well it would do getting buzzed by a train of bro boats which is our only "big lake" option locally.

    Fit a fair amount of beer innit, but hard to cast from.

    That would be cool for the seventy 48 race up in Washington.

    Just the thing for Lake Como in Italy, to go and visit George and Amal and their twins.

    I'll take two, thanks.

    A nice, simple, FUNCTIONAL, pedal boat would be a good form of light exercise.
    May be some rough water ahead. We're getting new captain.

    So strangely enough my parents just asked about pedal boats so they can have one on the new winter property in PHX.

    I'm more a paddle board guy but what the heck, looks electric assist could be the thing for them.

    The roll-bar forward doesn't look like a very comfortable backrest. Remove that and the excessive branding and I like it.
