The Water Wheel Kayak

Contest Closed
Description:
We are looking to blend the kayak with the pedal boat.

What we want is to recreate the design thought up by Hobie Cat in which they incorporate a pedal design within the kayak. However, we want the pedals to be linked to two water wheels on the side rather than the "fin" system that Hobie Cat uses. (see photo for details)

This kayak needs to incorporate a pedal system where people would normally just rest their feet. It would also have to showcase two water wheels on the side. We want the water wheels to be linked by an axe so that they may be easily removed from the kayak if the user chooses to do so.

For kayak base use Prower 13 by Ocean Kayak (picture attached).

The new design would have
A) two pedals where one would normally rest their feet. (see Slayer 13 picture for pedal design inspiration)

B) An axe with two water wheels that would be placed at the front the of kayak above the pedals but below the hatch. (See the water wheel picture for inspiration)

We'd like the water wheels to be removable and not as bulky as the one in the "Water Wheel picture"

What we need- 2 drawings, one from the top, one from the side (just like the slayer 13 picture)
Wants:
Wheels- we want a sleek, innovative wheel system designed for the 21st century.

Integration- We want the system to be easily integrated into the kayak and for the wheels to be able to be removed.
Don't Wants:
We do not want an old, bulky wheel system such as the one showcased in the "water wheel" picture. This is just for inspiration and to show how the wheels would have to fit on the exterior of the kayak.
Software:
  1. AutoCAD
  2. Adobe Illustrator

Hello, I put more thought into it and found a simpler way compared to my first go. Which will cut down on the products weight and extra parts that aren't need. Thanks.

Hi Jean-Michel
Base on all current submitted entry,do you think, we meet the par of 'simple 3D' that will entitled prize money $250?
If not please made known (area to emphasize) in order for the designers to make the tweaking.
We still have 8 more days to make it happen.

I will also integrate water wheel in the next submissions and if got time the cleat belt concept.

Thank You

I am interested by your cleated belt solution .
Could you developp and design it ?

How could use cleated blet as humain power on the kayak ?
Thu, 08 Jan 2015 19:39:31 +0000
I have a thought for a design using a cleated belt instead of a wheel, this would be more efficient way of using human power. Using this type of belt would also have a low profile above the side of the kayak as opposed to a wheel.http://www.mini-mover.com/media/photo-gallery/cleated-belt-conveyor-1.jpg

Do you need a full design, most ready for fabrication (this cost normaly for this project over $1500)
or a 3D Modell as pre ready (this $500-$700)
or just a concept with or without simple 3D ($200-$300)

$120 is really like zero. Please think about the quality you need. When you need that profis work for you you have to invest more than zero ;)

cordage cam and hook
This is to be a prototype device so it may have a few iterations. There will be additional funds for a planned phase II of this prototype. The idea is a way to secure cordage or twine. The rough specs are 40mm long, 20mm wide and 5mm thick at the base. The cam should be modeled similarly to the look of something you would see on a sailboat. The arch must be just slightly lower than the top of the cam. The cam should be usable for 2mm-6mm cordage.
