Guys, go here and post a request for a new Scout Forum. One of the Mods can set one up for you.

Only an Admin (JanetH or Andy) can setup the software to add another subforum. Mods cannot.

I've made that trip a couple of times. About 175 miles a long ways from shore. Never would have thought of using the Scout as a PASSAGEMAKER. Udaman

I don't think anyone's planning on crossing the Atlantic in one but I think they are capable coastal cruisers. I hope to take Olive to the Bahamas one of these days.

Scout 30 SubForum

Gonzo.. After phone conversations with several Scout 30 owners who are in favor of some kind of forum/clearing house, and in reading positive comments on this thread, we would like to proceed with the idea of a Scout30 subforum first suggested recently by FlyWright.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Can you help us with our next steps?
Thank you.

Sea scout

Was this the boat used in the Hallmark movie "Daniel's Daughter"? We live in CA and have a 1979 Sea Scout powered with a Perkins diesel.

Y'alls boats are fine looking, sort of have a mini-Titanic look from the bow facing aft from the pics posted.

Did a Scout 30 thread ever get started?

In the fall of 2012, I did attempt to get a Scout 30 SubForum started; however, for my own lack of knowing how, it just didn't happen. Subsequently I did put together a Facebook page with the title "Scout 30 Owners Group".

It has been well received, and we truly hope that it will continue to be a helpful resource for owners and enthusiasts of these special little yachts. There are many photos posted, showing various details of over 20 boats. As they are now up to 30yrs old, there appears to be significant restoration work being done, equipment upgrades, and many new coats of finish being applied!

Perhaps a subforum here might be useful as well.
Thanks for your interest, Reuben!

I have been infatuated by the Scout since her introduction. My current interest is that I feel this easily driven, pocket cruiser is close to ideal for electric propulsion. I am heavily vested in hybrid boating owning a 12 meter solar-diesel-electric boat, the DSe 12m.

Should I wish to proceed, I would like to find an "aging" Scout in need of a new motor (since that would be the first item to replace).

Being an aficionado, I'd like to join your Facebook group (I have found it!)

Are Scout 30s and Maple Bay 30s related?

I don't think so. The Mable Bay is a Tad Roberts animal, I believe.

No. The Maple Bay 27 was built by Dallas Selman, in Cobble Hill (near Duncan BC) who then sold the moulds to Jim Scrivins in Victoria who modified them to produce the 30 and 32 models.

Given that the 32 was powered by a 54 HP Isuzu it could also be a candidate for Rueben's electric motivation, although it has a different aesthetic. A nice aesthetic, mind you.
