Nauticraft is the Gold Rush of pedal boats
The best pedal boats I have ever seen or used. There was a short piece written about them in Recumbent News a few years ago as I recall. In any event these are expensive, but really top grade boats. Well designed with unbelievable performance. Several years ago the guy who developed them took one to Newport, RI to the Small Boat Show and challenged all others to a race that was out to a buoy and back. Kayaks, sea skiffs, shells, you name it, all entered the competition. The Nauticraft handily beat the field. Then one of the guys in a shell wanted to try it. He was an Olympian and could not believe this goofy pedal boat with a fat guy in it beat him. He bested his own time over the course by almost 1 full minute on his first attempt.

This development, one of the largest in Muskegon County at this time, is estimated to generate at least $626 million worth of private investment in the community, and generate around 726 high wage, highly skilled manufacturing jobs. This will make fortu the second largest manufacturing company in the county next to Alcoa Howmet.
