I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

Vanhunks Fin Drive

Vanhunks Fin Drive


The Vanhunks Fin Drive is a removable system that is easy to use and allows you to reach top speeds in no time. It is designed to maintain momentum when you are moving, freeing up your hands when trawling. The installation of the Vanhunks Fin Drive is simple with its drop-in and lock system.

The push forward action of the Vanhunks Fin Drive provides powerful forward torque, making kayaking more efficient and comfortable. The fin drive propels the kayak forward with quiet propulsion, using the most prominent human muscle group for a natural movement.

The Vanhunks Fin Drive pedals can be adjusted for leg length, making it suitable for taller or shorter kayakers. This system is compatible with various Vanhunks Kayaks, including Sauger, Shad, Pike, and Mahi Mahi (kayak not included).

In terms of durability, the Vanhunks Fin Drive is made with corrosion-resistant components, ensuring its longevity. It is designed to be maintenance-free and self-cleaning, with the recommendation to rinse it with fresh water after ocean use.

When it comes to storage, the Vanhunks Fin Drive is lightweight and can be easily stored in the kayak. It is suitable for all water conditions, including shallow areas where the fins can be flushed with the hull.

Additionally, the Vanhunks Fin Drive comes with neoprene footpads and self-centering pedals for added comfort and stability.

For those interested in compatibility with specific kayak models, the Vanhunks Fin Drive should fit in a Hobie Outback pedal kayak. However, it is recommended to confirm compatibility with the specific year model of the Outback.

The Vanhunks Fin Drive also includes an adapter for the Elite Pro Angler kayak. In addition to the adapter, it comes with a set of spare fins and foot straps.
