Pro angler peddle slap

dont know anyway to describe it other than that, when peddleing, hear the fins slap against the hull.
I am 5"8" and have the peddles on the 2nd indent.

Yes, if you push the stroke to the stops... the fins contact the hull bottom. You can reduce the stroke slightly to eliminate this.

okay, will try that, thanks for the quick response. Just my 2 cents, but peddling is much more efficient that paddling, i have a tendency to hit the hand holds without much effort, achieve 3 mph according to my gps peddling at a normal pace (for a 64 year old)
