Pedal boats are powered by your feet and paddle boat is powered by your hands.

Can you use a paddle board in a river?


Yes. Paddle boats can be sued on any body of water as long as it is safe to do so. Always wear a personal floating device when paddle boating for added safety.

Can hear water in the hull; is there a quick drain and where is the most likely area it is leaking from, is there a kit? model H27.


in the nose of the boat right next to the handle theres a funny looking switch if you stand the boat on its nose and flip the switch it will let the water out.
But...in my personal opinion it keeps the hull a little lower to the water and the paddles deeper...

Kayak drifting to the left


These boats are very short and have a smooth hull with very little keel. Because of this they will not track well and will have a tendency to turn.

You don't say how experienced a paddler you are.
Check also that you are holding your paddle equi distant from both blades. You may be unconsciously paddling harder with your right hand if you are right handed. Most of us are one-side dominant. You may also be sitting slightly diagonally in the boat without realising it. Experiment with shifting your position. Also consider a backrest if one is not already fitted.

You can fit a skeg to the stern whichwill improve straight line tracking. Abit like a fixed rudder. Use heavy duty elastic to hold it onto the boat stern.

When can I paddle with kayak?


You can, but it's all about compromise ? and safety. Generally, the shorter the boat the easier it will turn (great for rivers and white water), but the slower you'll be getting from point A to point B. The longer the boat (most sea kayaks) the better it generally tracks and the faster and safer it travels through water.

Length og a kayak


The longer the boat the faster the hull speed. So if your friends are paddling kayaks that are seventeen feet long and you are in a twelve-foot kayak, you'll be paddling much harder just to keep up. If you intend to paddle on smaller bodies of water, say ponds or small lakes where distance is not a factor, length is not so important. But if you live (or plan to paddle) on a bay, then you should consider more of a touring boat which will track straighter and move through the water with greater stability as well as speed.

Long of the canoe


When you are sitting in the boat and the blade is totally immersed, the top grip should be about shoulder high for general and touring use. For white water and more specialized paddling, a longer paddle, especially for the stern paddler, provides more reach and leverage for maneuvering the boat.
