I think that Huck is doing the best he can. Along the journey Huck steals things but doesn't feel too bad because he "intends" to give it back. Huck lives by a social code that does not conform with Southern manners. Huck's close friendship with Jim is a positive aspect of this. Huck does feel bad for leaving the two robbers and tied up man on the sinking ship. This doesn't make Huck a hero. I think he is honorable in his own way. He is certainly developing his sense of honor at this point in the novel. Huck is still yet to really prove himself in regards to Jim.
