I was over at Maui (wife made me go) and observered some young people using a Hobie Cat Mirage Tandem pedal power (kayak?).
It seemed to handle real sweet going out through some low surf and looked pretty stable in the open water with 2 people aboard and moved right along. They were fishing and diving from it. I looked it over and talked to em and they said they loved it.
I checked with the rental outfits and they said they don`t use em cuz they always come back broken. I read some reviews and most seemed favorable except in shallow water and with only one occupant.
I`m a pretty big guy 265# with most of my bulk above the water line and always felt a little uneasy padling. There is not a dealer anywhere near me to try one out. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience they could share on these rigs
