Can you put a pedal boat on top of a car?

Can you fish out of a pedal boat?

Is canoeing harder than kayaking?
Because of the common inclination to canoe without training, many beginners find canoeing more difficult than kayaking. In reality, however, both kayaks and canoes require training and experience. A kayaker will need the skills to keep the craft afloat when winds and waves become rough.
Is kayaking faster than rowing?
Rowing can be more efficient than paddling. Compare a canoe or kayak with a rowing shell. The speed of a shell is much higher. However, a particular kayak or canoe could be faster than a particular rowboat; particularly something wide and heavy like a skiff.
How does a pedal boat work?
When you wind up the paddle, the rubber band stores energy. This is potential energy, which occurs because the twisted rubber band is not in equilibrium—you have to hold it in place or it will unwind. When you let go of the paddle, the rubber bands unwind to rotate the paddle and push the boat forward.
