Klepper's solar-powered E-Kayak gives your arms a rest - Images Paddling lakes, bays and rivers by kayak is a rewarding experience, but it can also be quite tiring. That's why Klepper offers paddlers the benefit of a solar-powered electric drive in its E-Kayak kit. The paddler can kick back and let the small motor take over the forward-floating load. The design adds a little modern-day technology and convenience to Klepper's classic folding kayak.

I made it pretty far too but then I became a teenager, decided it was “lame” and quit.
