They're awesome. Got one in my slip right now. (On loan )

They're expensive if you think of them as plastic tenders only, but they're comparable in costs if you think of them compared to life-raft costs. Another backwards way to think of it is, "why is a life raft $6K, it's just a round inflatable dinghy". Also pudgys are waaay cheaper than most of the RIB tenders with zoom-zoom motors that are on the back of lots of the powerboats and big sailboats.

The way I figure, I had budgeted for a nice sailing dink/tender and for a liferaft. Once I found the pudgy I was able to re-budget with both items in the same column and save money as well.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
