    Everything is in operating order, but plenty of little projects to keep me entertained.

    Thanks for the boat Paul!

    I'd get rid of that center console and convert that 150 over to a tiller!

    What's the deal with all that "V" in the running surface... not use to that with our beloved microskiffs.  ;D  Peformance numbers... WOT 50.64 MPH, fuel burn... yea a lot of GHP with that 2 smoker 150!  :D

    I have never been on a scout but Ive always really liked them. The look like there built well and the layout seems very user friendly. Nice boat Jan, use in good health

    Those Scouts were never the sexiest boat but they sure are fine crafts. An old neighbor had one and he loved it but I never made it out on it.

    Question: I know where you live and with all of your toys, are you parking this on your roof?

    May not be the sexiest, but built very well! Plus the last time I checked fish don't get caught based on the sexiness of the boat... ;D

    No, toys go in the toy box, not the house.
