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.

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

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. ...
