    Default Skeeter Wood

    Hello. I want to buy an 04' Skeeter ZX2200. I've been told Skeeter uses wood in the construction of their boats and to "watch out". Is this true? If so, where is wood used? the decks? the transom? I called the Skeeter factory twice on Friday and left messages for an individual who is supposed to know but did not get a call back and now they are closed for after the holidays. Any information would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Default Wood

    I own a 1998 and it has a wood transom. When Triton Came out with their complete Composite boats by the year 2000 all boat makers had gone complete composite to the best of my knowledge. I have a buddy that has a 2001 Skeeter ZX series and when he was installing a new transducer on the outside of his boat and was drilling holes he said there was no wood in his transom. I found this article in the Skeeter site that may help a little.

    INNOVATION
    Composite One-Piece Floor: The floor of the SKEETER i-Class and ZX is one solid piece. It is composed of a PVC crosslinked foam, sandwiched between layers of fiberglass.
    EX-Cel Composites, for the Industry's Strongest Hull: The transom, stringers and floor utilize aerospace derivatives known as EX-Cel composites, which provide outstanding strength and durability.
    A Finish That Lasts: The polyflake finishes are applied using an exclusive "dry flake" system that allows the flake to be sprayed behind the clearcoat for a lustrous, durable finish that resists migration through the clear gel top coat and lasts longer. Additionally, it has our extra-tough Armorcoat? gel coats that are considered the best in the industry against weathering and blistering.
