    I remember going on a pedalo with my brother on a like in a park in Northampton, when we at the far end it started to rain, & we were drenched by the time we got back to the moorings!

      I remember hiring small boats, similar to pedalos, but instead of feet you worked it with your hands, like those early paddle steamers, but muscle-powered.

        Yes I've seen some like that.

        Hodges uses one in an episode of Dad's Army when they get stuck on the end of a pier.
