juro I actually really like the idea and am really not very concerned about shark attacks. There are places where I might be but not where I would be kayaking. It's a great idea to have hands free. A pedal prop might be nice too although it's probably prone to damage. A tunnel vee prop yak... OK now I am getting a bit carried away.

The animation appears to suggest a little up and down motion while the fins operate.

I wonder if you can flap one side to turn.

Eddie Speaking of sharks, I saw on the tube two jet skiers motoring through a school of hundreds of sharkss. From a helicopter, the dramatic irony was off the charts.
As far as the Hobie kayak is concerned, I have a buddy in Fla. who is a .com retiree who loves his. Fishes every day (usually out of his Maverick) and swears by it. He says that it's much more eficient than just a paddle, and I belive him. All the human powered records are powered in the recumbant possition.

juro I caught that ultimate sharkiness episode, it was awesome. The way they can be put into a daze with a rub under the snout is just as amazing.

Wouldn't want to be yakkin' along that stretch of sea.

WOW,I saw this on last nights Dateline. Its quite a sight to see a 14-16 foot great white completely out of the water with a seal in its mouth. The program is supposed to run as part of shark week sometime in the next month.

SOLO Juro...
I saw this model at the Providence fishing show last...It's an interesting concept...especially if you paint the bottlom and flippers a dark seal-blue-black and trail a chum bag soaked with bunker oil.

Sorta' like going deer hunting in a deer costume...on the brink!
