Model Introduction
The Scout 262 Abaco Walkaround is a single or twin outboard-powered family fishing boat, with comfortable accommodations and an all-business fishing cockpit.

Construction
Scout boats are very well built, as well as any in the saltwater fishing industry. They are built entirely of rot-proof fiberglass and composite coring materials""no balsa or any other kind of wood is used structurally.

Vinylester is preferred, but Scout says that blistering has never been a problem.

Divinycell coring is used to stiffen the hull sides, while the bottom is solid fiberglass. A one-piece flanged fiberglass hull support grid is bonded to the hull skin with methacrylate adhesive. One unique characteristic of Scout's design is that the hull stringers continue past the transom to the outboard bracket, so the main hull structure directly absorbs the engine's weight, torque and thrust. Another unique design feature is the hull-to-deck joint, which different than a shoe-box joint""the deck fits inside the hull part, and the joint is continuously bonded together using methacrylate adhesive. ...
