Wow, after a full day of tromping through the conference center and running boats for the NMMA Innovations awards, the Miami show is already cranking at full speed – and it hasn’t even started yet!


There aren’t a whole lot of new fishboats being introduced this year, but today we did see one that’ll be on interest to many anglers: Scout’s new 210 center console. The hull is a departure from the usual variable-degree deadrise, with three different planes of increasing deadrise going from the keep up. It’s similar to Sea Craft’s old design in the inverse (Sea Crafts’¬†three planes of the hull¬†went down in deadrise, as you moved up from the keel).


A couple of really nifty features were the transom seat, which folds up to create a motorwell damn or removes completely to increase cockpit space, and the forward console seat, which is twice as long as most and features arm rests and a fishbox/dry stowage box underneath.


Like most Scout’s it’s a slick little machine – look for a full review in an upcoming www.HookedOnFishingBoats.com test! See you tomorrow, at the boat show – enjoy!
