Thought you may like this if you have not seen it.
NO - I have no connections at all.
Granted it obviously is great in some ways, I doubt that it can leave many sailing craft behind.
The sales rep in the video also talks like a **** :p
Looks like an awesome tender though.

A friend of mine has one at his cottage. It really scoots, even with a small outboard. He says that the only problems is that at high speeds the hull becomes unstable. He is very happy with the boat.

My buddy has one. He went through at least 10 dinghies before he decided on this tender. He tried all sort of options and engines, and PORTA-BOTE is the one he decided on. It goes pretty well.

Great little boat. Two or three HP provides remarkably good performance. I believe they are rated for up to 5HP, but a smaller motor is more in keeping with the concept. I think they provide a sensible solution to the dinghy problem.
