What if the OP dont have the $$$ for OEX??? Like someone mentioned, Get a used Hobie Outback for around the same price. Now as far as peddle drive system, last I test drove them they were not smooth as you would think your peddling a bicycle. There is a weird lag on each stroke, but maybe they fixed it. The Mirage drive is butter smooth, also keep in mind if your fishing the harbors, a tight steering yak is awesome and that can be had with changing the rudder on the outback. That Pelican probably steers ok, but I also note there are no sealed dry hatch compartments which I feel is necessary. Good luck and buy what you can afford and go fishing!
