About the Boat

The boat is a 2005 Scout 240 Bay Scout powered by a 2020 Yamaha 300. The new motor provides excellent reliability and power and combined with the size of the boat creates an awesome platform for fishing the bay and venturing a few miles off the coast. The boat also has the space to comfortably take any group up to 6 people out for a day inshore fishing or cruising the sandbar on the weekends.
