The Skipper's Hat is a special item found at the Castaways' Fortress. It is held by The Skipper and is the best way to defeat Gilligan.

The Skipper will use the hat to fight you when you first encounter him. It does about ten points of damage per hit.

Against anyone other than Gilligan, the hat is a reusable but weak weapon with a range of 1. Against Gilligan, it is unusually effective and prevents him from using his item-destroying special attack.
