Like all Achilles HB-AX models it features a tough, powder coated marine grade aluminum hull with a full length keel guard to stand up to frequent beachings, coral, rocks, and other rough surfaces. The double heavy-duty rubbing strake on all HB-AX models offers addition protection to the tubes from rocks, docks, and pilings. HB-AX models also come with a vented bow locker option large enough to accommodate a gas tank, and the ability to run a fuel line under the deck that enables you to free up deck space that is usually taken up by the fuel tank and fuel line. It also helps distribute weight more evenly by moving the gas tank forward.
