Propel Pedal Drive System (patent pending) is ingeniously designed and feature-laden. You can pedal in reverse which is invaluable for fishing, docking and photography. It easily tilts out of the water and out of the way on the bow when you'd rather paddle or pole. Sealed against sand and grit and made from marine grade aluminum and stainless steel, the Propel (patent pending) is built to perform in fresh or salt water. Minimum maintenance required. See the Propel Ownership page for details like assembly videos and the Care and Maintenance Manual.
