True to form, the spray coming off the chines broke just aft of the helm leaning post, keeping us bone dry. Although the water in the "ditch" was calm, we crossed enough rolling wakes to test the BX's mettle. It pierced the swells like sharp hooks penetrate soft jerk baits. Re-entry was soft and sure. Sea Hunt doesn't cut any corners when it comes to the hull lay-up. This 24-footer tips the scales at 2,700 pounds, and it has a solid, dependable feel while underway. I wouldn't hesitate running one several miles offshore to fish when conditions are right. And if it did turn nasty, I'm confident it would get me home safely. Although there's no Kevlar in the hull (and no wood, either, only composite coring), this boat is about as bulletproof as they come. It's backed by a 10-year hull warranty.
