Outboard power, the ever more prevalent propulsion for an array of boat types, offers a number of well-known plusses. These include the ability to trim clear of the water, enhanced corrosion resistance, and providing more space inside the boat. Outboard power gives this new 20-foot-3-inch Glastron deck boat an extra dose of performance, as it does other boats, due to a superior horsepower-to-weight ratio. The two-stroke Evinrude E-Tec 200 weighs just 418 pounds, lighter by half compared to a sterndrive or inboard of comparable power. (Put another way, the heavier motors essentially make you carry the equivalent of three extra crew members.) Deadrise is a stable 17 degrees, and in typical deck-boat style, the chines are carried far forward to a wide bow that creates a spacious seating area and a boarding platform. The styling is crisp, with some sharp edges and creases molded into the deck as highlights.
