It looks cool, but have you seen the price tag? $1900!

For that sort of $ I would expect some sort of power assisted method to get from paddling mode to standing mode.

I looked at outrigger kits a while back which offer a lower cost option.

Being the first of breed in anything often brings a high price.

I would imagine we will see competitors follow suit and thus reduced prices over time.

It's over my budget now but I can think of some spots where this would be an incredible thing to have.

Somebody had a "Eureka!" moment, that's for sure! It will be interesting to see if it catches on.

More parts = more possible parts to break. What would happen if the 'hinge' stuck or broke? That would make an interesting paddle back I'll bet. :smokin:

I prefer a nice wide Flat-bottomed canoe if I want to stand up and fish.
