Boat of all Trades

“We got caught off guard,” says Tom Mit­zlaff, re­fer­ring to the video of his Solo Skiff ($1,850)—a cross be­tween a skiff, fish­ing kayak, and a SUP—that had over six mil­lion views af­ter he posted it to Face­book. “No­body makes a video think­ing it’s go­ing to go vi­ral.”

But vi­ral it went. And now de­mand for the Solo Skiff has sky­rock­eted. Mit­zlaff, a Jack­sonville, Florida res­i­dent, says he was in­spired to cre­ate a “swamp-proof boat,” one he could launch out of his truck and bring any­where. When we shared it on our Face­book page, com­ments ranged from in­credulity (“Okay I have of­fi­cially seen it all”) to ex­cite­ment (“Very cool!”) to what best de­scribes our feel­ing as well: long­ing (“I want one”). It’s avail­able in three col­ors and with plenty of stowage.
