Portland pudgy

Has anyone had first hand experience with the Pudgy? I have heard all the opinions pro and con, but except from to favorable comments provided by the manufacturer, it is hard to find someone who has used the Pudgy for long term cruising.

I thought about buying one. Sounds like an interesting idea.

After IKE blew through last year, a boater at a marina near mine was using his to get back and forth to his boat, and allowed me to take a close look and get a first hand experience with the weight. It's too heavy for me.

Went with an AirDeck inflatable instead. And it's plenty heavy!
