We've seen tents in the trees, so why not tents on the water? The Shoal tent combines the floating fun of an inflatable raft with the after hours coverage of a sealed, waterproof canopy. That I sure hope is stronger than my tendency to toss and turn close to the edge of the "rafttress" could be.
Shoal Tent maker SmithFly has designed their 8' x 8' inflatable raft to accommodate a packable, and also inflatable tent. No tent poles are required for canopy setup. Inflated, the heavy duty fabric topper secures to the raft with hook and loop closures and has window and door panels fitted with #8 zippers.
The raft portion of the Shoal Tent has 3 air chambers, 2 in its lower tube and 1 in the structure. Its bottom is a 6" thick drop stitched high pressure floor that doubles as an air mattress for sleeping.
Inside the Shoal Tent you'll have room for people up to 6'3" tall to both stand and lie down. When not in use the raft and canopy pack into a burrito roll approximately 60" x 24" x 18". Total Shoal Tent weight is 75 pounds.
