    Porto-Boat seems a good idea but is the 14' any use for anything other than lakes and ponds?

    I was looking at these to use as a tender because I like the look of a clear deck and they are light enough to swing on a single J bar davit. Wondering how they will perform in a light swell, wind, or chop.

    This doesn't answer the question, but I can't stop myself from posting it anyway...
