There's a big race to see who can build the best inshore/offshore fishboat, and Scout Boats is challenging this dual-mission competition with its new 240. Thanks to a scant 11" draft with its motor up, the 240 is a strong player on the flats. Many of its competitors draw 5" to 6" more-a problem when you're chasing reds and snook, which hang out where the "deep" water barely touches your knees. Yet the 240's 8'6" beam provides a stable platform when trolling for kingfish and dolphin.

The 240's most unique feature? The rod stowage that runs along the outer edges of the forward casting deck is completely hidden. Flip-down hatches make it easy to stow rods up to 8'6" long in any of the four tubes on each side. Rubber cords secure the rods in place. The compartment locks-no one would know that any rods are there. Some larger boats offer similar rodboxes, but you'll be hard pressed to find them on any other shallow-water fishboat.

The 240 also has a large stowage compartment in the console, with 4'5" of headroom-enough to accommodate a portable MSD. Another feature aboard the 240 that's rare on skinny-water machines is a removable settee that spans the stern deck. All compartment lids are foam cored. They're strong and stiff, but lightweight, and have a nice clean finish. One obvious omission: There's no hawsepipe for the anchor rode, although there's a large anchor locker. Just a notch in the hatch would do the trick. Sooner or later you'll step on the hatch and either damage it or the hinges.

Overall, the fit and finish of the 240 is as good as it gets on a production boat of this price. For example, the cupholders, set flush into the aft deck, have drain tubes that lead water to the scuppers, which is better than having water drip into the bilge.
