Personally, I like my porta-bote... but it was originally not bought for use a sailboat tender, but as a fishing boat...a gift from my wife.
That may be biasing my opinion a bit... but it rows credibly well and motors even better.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
