The 1Liaisaon Eco Boat

 - Dec 2, 2008
I hate pedal boats. Oh sure, they are fun when you go down wind or down current, but there is always the dreaded return trip and the smell of burning thighs as I struggle to get the craft back to shore. Manual Schneider identifies with me because he made a pedal-electric hybrid design boat. With his invention, while cranking the pedals downstream, you are also charging up a battery. The 1Liaisaon paddleboat has pedals that are connected to a dynamo that recharges the battery. Electricity and water! What could be more fun?
