Wow, I'm gettin' a Pudgy!

This thing came up in the liferaft debate (thanks blackjenner) and it's just too damn cool not to talk about.

Portland Pudgy multifunction dinghy -- the fun boat that could save your life!

Look at this thing sail! If that dude ever passes me on the lake I'm throwing an oar at him:

PUDGYs have the right idea with the wrong execution. Huge windage, heavy, ugly, HDPE. I will take a nice sailing dinghy from fiberglass any day. Less windage, lighter, stronger, easier to fix. You can still add a canopy to an 8' sailing dink, and make it unsinkable, it will just be less ugly!

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.

When time comes for a new tender it is on my list. Great idea, well executed, just a weeeee bit expensive.

Now dog are you trying to hurt my feelings? It's not nice to hit a guy in handcuffs.

1- No they only bicker like siblings.
2- Probably
3- Tell your dad it's time to have "the talk." If, after having "the talk" you disagree with dad about where to put it, it will be time for you to have "the other talk" with dad. He will appreciate it, and understand your previously mystifying passion for Streisand.

I know right? This guy just won't leave me alone! It's enough to make a guy lose his Pudgy.

I don't know the official depth of LT, but I've seen upper 400s on the gauge. How deep is the Multi Puddle?

Smack, if you are getting a little pudgy, might I suggest a diet or light exercise three times a week?
