TRAILER NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE (trailer is custom fit for this boat and available for purchase). This is a very clean example of a dry stack maintained boat. It did live behind the owners house in a lift for a couple of years which is why there is bottom paint on her. But with 101 hours on the clock, this rig has plenty of fishing left to do.
With so much desire to downsize, the 191 Bay Scout has come along at just the right time. This new model is designed with fuel-efficient four-strokes in mind, and it doesn't require a lot of horsepower to get up and go.
The key to the 191's performance advantage is the reverse transom. Far more than just a styling exercise, moving extra displacement aft of the engine's mounting point offsets the additional weight of a modern four-stroke outboard, keeping the boat stable at rest and enhancing on-plane running performance. A stepped section allows the boat to pivot and plane quicker, and reduces wetted surface area and drag at planing speeds. The end result of this clever engineering is a 19-foot fishing boat that performs well on a 90 hp outboard, but can also shoulder a 150 hp four-stroke.
The hull design also adds versatility to boat's fishing missions too. With its 10-inch draft, flats anglers would be justified in adding a push pole and possibly a stern platform. The boat is equally suited for open waters, as we found it stable with two anglers on one side of the bow platform.
As one would expect from a company such as Scout, the 191 musters a full complement of fishing features, including livewells, rod storage, a removable fishing chair and built-in tackle organizers. In short, all the things a fisherman would want in a compact but fully capable angling platform.
