What's the best way of getting ashore?

I'm looking for a nice easy solution to getting ashore when at anchor. The best solution I can think of is a small inflatable, however, the smallest and cheapest available in the UK are 2.3m & around 300! The US make many light duty inflatables for around $60, ie a tenth of the UK price! I appreciate that I'm not comparing like with like, however, my requirement of getting ashore (25m max) in fair conditions will be met by either.

How have you solved this problem?

Viking Lifesaving on our business park are getting rid of their last few Narwhal tenders- you might get a good deal from them

This is what you want: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...169860178&rd=1
Use an electric pump (5.99 in argos) and you'll have a "tender" in about 2 minutes....
