Scout also blessed the 245 XSF with a table that folds out from the horizontal front of the locker or folds away unobtrusively to keep the deck clear. Scout has a tradition of this kind of dual-purpose engineering, also evidenced by the folding wave gate aft. Up, this keeps splash from the selfbailing cockpit; down, it serves as a bench seat. Remove the cushion and it’s a casting platform. There’s a head, livewells, rod holders, two swim steps and great access to wiring, pumps and through-hull fittings. I suggest doubleclamping the raw water hoses, however.
