I hear ya, PUNGO PUNGO but could you help me with the WHY WHY... Is it faster? lighter? cheaper?
What was your criteria, I really am in the hunt and this is helpful info.
My criteria will include (in order of importance):
[#] Getting in when the tide has risen to waist depth
[#] Safety / stability
[#] Ease of handling by myself even when the tide has gone out
[#] Speed in current, wind, chop, etc.
[#] Dry storage on board
