Rigid Dinghy Experience?

I am about to order this Rigid Dinghy, Tender 10 from by AGI Group and would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has owned or used one.

rigid

Hi,
I have the 8' model that I got used with a 9.9 yamaha. which is great for 2 adults and cargo. Quality is great and is as stable as advertised. I have walked around the entire edge of the dinghy with no one else in it with no problem. I am not a fan of inflatables as they never seem to be deflated for storage(especially the RIB) everyone seems to just tow them around or keep them on davits and half the time they seem to leaking. I love having the stablity of a inflatable with all the other benifits for a rigid. Definitly a well built boat.

I have a friend that has one of those, we always called it the battle dinghy, that sucker is bulletproof, he dives from it and everything else, he loves it.
