Scout Boats have no structural wood, and use composite stringers and transoms. The "Air Assist" hull was designed to combat static stability. With additional longitudinal buoyancy, the "Air Assist" hull increases the static flotation and decreases time to plane and vastly improves overall handling characteristics. A side benefit is increased fuel economy. The engine mounting system on the 280, called the "Scout Strata-Mount" is a fully factory molded bracket with one very important feature: the two main longitudinal grip stringers pass through the transom and are integrated into the engine mount. This design allows the natural stresses of the engines to be spread out over the entire hull, increasing strength, durability and performance.
