There are 2 steering options for inflatable pedal kayak. Easiest and simplest, is just to use kayak paddle to change direction of movement. Most of the time, you will be kayaking in a strait direction. Fins on a bottom of kayak help it with strait directional movement. Just few stroke of kayak paddle can easily adjust direction as needed, turn left or right, or reverse. Another easy option, is to hold one end of kayak paddle blade under left or right armpit, while letting other end of kayak paddle blade freely trail behind in a water, toward kayak rear, acting as a rudder. Slight adjustment of kayak paddle that way will easily correct kayak direction while pedaling.

Introducing Saturn FPK365 Inflatable Pedal Kayak

DIY Rudder Setup for FPK365 Pedal Kayak

  • This is NOT a racing kayak. Do NOT apply too much pressure to pedals to go faster, as that might damage chains and cables. Average kayak speed is 3-4 mph. Do NOT overload pressure with too much powerful pedal strokes. Damage to chain and cables will not be covered by warranty.
  • Do NOT push on pedals too fast. Apply steady, light pressure on pedals to move forward. 1 stroke per 2 seconds is more than enough to move kayak fast forward.
  • If it so happen that lock of pedal drive accidently unlocks during normal operation, additional rubber string can be wrapped over lock handle and secured to self adhesive hook glued to rotomolded well insert. Please see Attachment tab for ideas. Alternatively, rotate rotomolded section 180 degree inside kayak floor. Simply deflate floor, rotate rotomolded part 180 degree and re inflate floor. That should fix unlocking issue.
  • Experiment with different stroke modes. Pedal stokes does not have to be all way from stop to stop. Shorter, half strokes will move kayak fast as well.
  • When in shallow, make sure that fins of pedal drive does NOT hit bottom, as that might damage fins. Move pedals apart, so that fins are flat against kayak bottom.
  • Always carry paddle on a kayak. Do not count only on pedal drive, as things might happen, and paddle can be used instead of pedal drive to get back.
  • Make sure that rotomolded insert oriented in strait line, not under angle. If pedal drive locks are moving during pedaling, that is because pedal drive not looking strait forward. It is normal for pedal drive components and locks to move slightly, due to natural flexibility of rotomolded insert. It is not 100% rigid.
  • Always wear PFD, whistle, communication devices, and notify someone about your trip plans.
  • Spare parts available. Please contact us for spare parts.

Nonetheless, my experience so far has been positive.

I recently bought the 12' Inflatable Fin Pedal Kayak from BoatsToGo and it surpassed my expectations. Surprisingly stable and comfy, though a better back support would be nice. Overall, a positive experience.
