I know these are boats, not bikes, but they are pedal powered so I think of them as bikes of the sea.

It looks like an Escapade would be a lot of fun on the lakes around here in the summer time but they are kind of expensive. Anyone in here own one of these or ever "ridden" one? Looks like the closest dealer to me is in Florida (I'm in TN) so i can't just drive to the local shop and check one out. I think that much like jet ski's these would be more fun if you had two of them so you and a friend could go on adventures. I have added the purchase of one of these to the top of my "Bucket list".

There is a cool demo video @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CYcvx7RtsA

Never seen that particular brand/model. IMHO pedal boats are fun for a bit then become too much like work if you want to really cover any distance. Electric boats have been around for over a century. Think Elco It would be neat to try one out and see how they do.

My personal preference in small boat power is sail or oar.
