Larry Brown of small boats fame reviewed the Pudgy in a Small Craft Advisor article some years ago. He tried out various sail configurations (lug, lateen, sprit, even an Optimist sail, etc.) in addition to the rig that comes with the boat as an option. He even played with the lee boards by shortening them, which he thought improved sailing on various points of sail and allowed the boat to sail in 5 or 6 inches of water. That issue (#85, Jan/Feb 2014) is out of print for backordering, but I think the article can be obtained from the magazine as a single printout (perhaps online).
I've always had an interest in that dinghy and since sailing "offshore" for me at my age is about 1000 feet away from any boat ramp, lake or sea, that the PP would be an ideal, safe, tender that would be fun to go out in.
