Years back when it was still a novelty I met the designer
and then builder
at the Maine
Boatbuilders Show. He was showing us all the details and what not. At the time he did not have $$ to exhibit at the show so he set up the pudgy just outside the show entrance and would talk to anyone who showed interest in it. Which were a lot of people.
His biggest point was that this was not only a capable dinghy
but more importantly a capable liferaft
. Wish I bought from him them as his boat show
at the time was all of $1,700 but since I had a 27 footer then it would not work
for me as a dinghy
BTW, what's included with your pudgy?
