Combined with a Rule 12volt inflator I can get it up in about 5 minutes and then strap on a little Yamaha 2hp and it can take 3 adults quite comfortably.

.....Queue Willk
I also have one of these.
It appears to be pretty tough and good value, I paid 120 for mine.

Low cost tender

I needed a tender for exact same reason.

Looked round and pondered for ages.

Got a great 2.3m sturdy tender from Gael Force - 250 and well worth it. So good that a couple of my mates have got them too now.

If you can't get to a Gael Force store they'll do you next day at decent price.

I also have a Gael Force 2.3m which I use as a tender. If you check out this months Yachting Monthly (yes i know!) they have a good article on the testing of 14 tenders...albeit for yachts.
