One of the boats that we had around the camp for years was a pedal boat. I had a love-hate relationship with it because I found it a nuisance and kind of awkward to move around. Mostly because of the paddle wheel in the bottom, which made pulling it up and down on shore less than ideal.
On the other hand, our kids got a great amount of enjoyment out of the pedal boat, using it to float around the cove. I liked it because the pedalling required helped to burn off some excess energy.
I have to admit, it was kind of fun. You are close to the water on a pedal boat and they are quiet and for the most part, fairly easy to pedal. They are not for big water by any means, but in a sheltered cove or a small lake, they can be a pleasure to use.
KL Industries® Sun Dolphin V Pedal Boat
The KL Industries® Sun Dolphin V pedal boat has all the features of a good pedal boat and more.
The Sun Dolphin V features 3 pedaling positions and 2 additional rear seating positions.
It has an aluminum tiller steering system for easy control, which I believe is much better than the console steering “joy stick” that was on the pedal boat we had.
In addition this one feautures a stainless-steel crankshaft which our pedal boat didn’t have, and it eventually rusted. The Sun Dolphin V pedal boat comes with recessed drink holders, built-in cooler/storage areas, and high back support.
