they actually used to make prop driven ones with more of a saddle than a laid back seat. My grandfather had one when I was a little kid. The thing actually could move quite quickly across the water.

Not sure who made it, but it was yellow on top with a white hull, and folded up for easy transport.

EDIT: it was an Aquafon pedal boat from the 70's. Really neat boat, and like I said, it moved across the water MUCH faster than the modern pedal boats. Had an actual prop and rudder.
