I looked at one of the pedaloes for hire at the Boating Lake in Cleethorpes. Two seats at the front (with pedals), and two seats at the back (without pedals). And I thought back to the time when I had hired a pedalo on Grundelsee in Austria. There were four of us in the pedalo. Those in front were doing all the pedalling, so in the middle of the lake we decided to swap seats. Only later did I read about the incredible depth of Grundelsee (was it 1800 feet or 1800 metres?). We weren't wearing life jacekts, but survived to tell the tale.
