    Absolutely. There was a promotional video where a guy cranks around in one acting impressed. I have never before seen such a huge wake from a human powered craft.

    sail20221.jpg The pedal boat season has started, for me at least. Not the greatest video ever produced but at least I'm chugging along at walking pace. I hasn't developed any leaks over the winter and my little trip has got me keen to get out again. With hard pedalling I can reach hull speed and two thirds hull speed is a comfortable cruise.
