Power is the thing that makes a Solo Skiff so different, and the different power options help make Solo Skiff the most versatile fishing kayak /boat anywhere. The Solo Skiff can use various outboard power options, or various electric trolling motors on it’s transom, as well as it can be readily paddled, giving you unmatched versatility! The ability to use a power option to suit that particular day’s fishing plan makes Solo Skiff an extremely versatile fishing boat- how you may ask ? Do you have to run a few miles to get to a certain spot that day ? Clamp on an outboard. An outboard motor on a Solo Skiff is the ultimate in cruising speed and range. Using an outboard with a small external tank gives you incredible range – try 40 mile range on two gallons of gas ! Using an outboard motor with a built in tank (on top of the engine) is the ultimate in portability- and leaves more space available for other gear since the tank is built into the motors cover. The smaller motor also saves a little weight. It is up to you to decide, but its just one more option. The next power option is an electric trolling motor. Want to cruse the shoreline and throw crankbaits for bass all day-or toss under the mangroves for snook – use a trolling motor! A trolling motor on the Solo Skiff has to be tried to be fully appreciated. The control handle is easy to reach, right at your back, so moving along all day is simple- just sit on the seat, grab the tiller and bump the boat down the shoreline…it’s truly awesome. You can bump the boat along all day, and cover miles of fishing ground in a totally relaxed way that is a pure blast to do, a true kayak on steroids. What it lacks in speed it makes up for in fishing ability for sure. Fishing Solo with a trolling motor is a true joy – try it, you will agree and see why many guys end up with both a trolling motor, and an outboard for true versatility.
