I don't believe these drives are prone to fail.

+2.  I have had 2 rudder pins break OTW but never my Mirage Drives.
Krusty has been going out 3-4 times a week with his Revo this year so i'm sure he's doubling or tripling what normal kayakers are doing in a year
I have a love hate relationship with these mirage drives! Time for a boat

Are you considering going full horsepower slay mode?  They will have to make seasonal regulations for the A.Julian Fish Harvest Company :smt005 :smt006

Here's what I ended up doing to get my 2nd mirage drive to fit into front hatch... I've got crank arms that are threaded for bike pedals, so I got a pair of these quick release pedals

https://www.amazon.com/MKS-Urban-Platform-Superior-Pedal/dp/B008EFIU78

With the pedals out, it'll (just) fit in the front hatch.

The only problem I foresee is that the pedals will rust. They do make similar pedals in titanium, but I didn't want to spend that much.



I got blisters on my fingers!
