Pro-Drive's X Series line was designed as a shallow-draft boat to compliment the company's shallow-draft outboards. After running many different boat designs, Pro-Drive discovered a square-chine boat floats higher and drafts less water, which produces better speeds and higher load carrying capabilities.
Because hunters cross logs, stumps and deal with conditions that can damage light-duty hulls, Pro-Drive constructs all of its boats with 1„8-inch-thick 5086 marine-grade aluminum, and runs 1-inch-by-2-inch rectangular ribs across the length of its boats. In addition, 2-inch-by-2-inch square tubing bracing the floor and sidewalls make the boats almost indestructible.
