At first I noticed the frame on the Outlaw X5 looked just like my Skykomish frame so that got me to wondering if it is and what the benefits are of the Outlaw hull when compared to the Skykomish's? Anybody?
I Jack, your Sky has two toons. The Outlaw series is a single unit so to speak. Much more stable than 2 separate toons also the capacity is increased. The frame to the Skykomish's and the X5 are the same size. The Challenger is bigger and the frame is called the X7.
I know a couple people here who have used both.
Also the ad in the catalog said to mount the frame on the Outlaw backwards and then you can mount an outboard on it. I'm thinking that is because the Outlaw really doesn't have the space in the rear to let an outboard hang down. Is that the reason they flip the frame? I never thought of mounting the frame backwards on the Sky and wonder if there's any reason to try it.
Hopefully I can get the answers from the throngs of people here. If not I'll have to bother Dave or Larry I reckon.
If there's any more questions I can help with, let me know
