The Solo Skiff puts a new spin on the personal flotation device.

Take a spin in the Solo Skiff, a cross between a kayak, a flats fishing boat, and a stand-up paddle board. Equipped with a five-horse-power outboard engine, this three-in-one watercraft is perfect for cruising over to Coatue, stalking stripers on the Madaket flats, or paddling around the island’s many ponds. Measuring just over fourteen feet long and weighing 150 pounds, the solo skiff’s polyethylene body is remarkably stable. While you might not want to take it through the breakers, at $1,500, this one-man ship won’t sink your bank account. Order yours at, and they’ll deliver it to your door.
