Most of us at the coast like our sleek low boats to paddle, 14+'
T160, Search15, Viking Reload, etc.
The other direction is Hobie drive, and the Compass is pretty much the starter Hobie for coast fishing.
What you need to keep in mind about pedal drive is how the seating affects stability and handling in coast wind. viewtopic.php?p=2302431#p2302431
Bicycle-crank-propeller drives have you sitting up really high and pedaling uphill. Hobie drive is more logical, but even then, shallow flats can limit the Mirage drive use, as in, you can only take it so far in skinny water before you must lift it and paddle.
