Hello Alan, You may remember my inquiry from July. I was just beginning the process of researching the purchase of a Dorado 275 and you provided me with your perspective on costs as they relate to transporting boats from your mfg facility etc. In any case I was early in...
Best boat I have ever owned. Motors are matched to boat, great electronics, great use of space, rides well even in rough water, many standard items not standard on other boats. Miles ahead of comparable Grady White and even ahead of comparable Pursuit although Pursuit is one of the best...
This is my third Scout, 141, 145 and now 155. Something about these small Scouts I just love. My new/used 2003 Scout SportFish 155 had filled with water (under the floor). The owner had now idea what to do so he sold the Scout….. Bad Scout owner… It was a...

Dear Scout Boats, Thank you Scout and CrewsN2 for a great boat 10 years and running. With years of fishing and fun in the Keys. When not in use as a boat our Scout doubles as a U-Haul to get our stuff to and from vacation. If they never wear...
Dear Scout Boats, The GHRI just finished conducting the annual census of the Cayman stingrays in Grand Cayman. This year we were assisted by three vets from the Georgia Aquarium, Tonya Clauss, Lisa Hoopes and Nicole Boucha, to assess the health of the rays by taking blood samples. Edingurgh university...
Dear Scout Boats, We have a 14-ft Scout that we absolutely love. We were pummeled by Tropical Storm Debby and the boat is probably a total loss. I write to you to tell how amazing it is. One side has completely sheared away by being beaten against a seawall. Still,...
Dear Scout Boats, I recently took delivery on my 177 Sport and have become more and more impressed with the quality I have seen. I wanted a quality boat and I obviously purchased the proper one. My latest observation was that everyone of the 87 screw heads attaching the stainless...

From a customer in Spain aboard their 245 XSF.
Dear Scout, This 95 lbs yellow fin tuna was caught off Dorado Puerto Rico on a 30 Lbs test line in our 175 SF Scout and after a strong fight we finally gaffed it. We may not have the biggest boat fishing offshore for big fish. But we got the...
Dear Scout, I just want to take a minute to thank Donna at Scout for her help with my Scout 185 on Monday. She found the part I needed and contacted Mid Carolina Marine to make sure that they got me taken care of. It means a lot when someone...
Dear Scout, I recently came across this picture from last year of my boat in the Florida Keys and thought ya’ll would like to see it. We were anchored on the ocean side of Islamorada when I took this picture and others of the sunset. Although it has been over...
Dear Scout, I’m having a great time on my new 187 Sportfish on the Wando River! Note the name – this is my third “Girl’s Scout”. I started off with a sweet little 155 SF in 1996. I traded up to a 175 SF in 2001 and had ten great...
