I see where Hobie's patent protection for the last 20 years has fallen off and these guys took Hobie's hard work in their gen 1 pedal drive and now are copying it.
I have a bit of a strange feeling about that. Yes, someone was going to take their work now that the patent is gone, but still have a weird vibe about that.
What do you think? Especially these days with boats that have a reverse this forward only design is again, 20 years old. Kind of like the new Old Town TopWater for a value pedal drive in that it has a 4 year warranty on the drive and the boat has a lifetime warranty on the hull.
Still interesting seeing what's newly released these days.
