Hi Bill,
Well I guess Congrats are in order!
Now on to the boat, I would say the 2820xl is pure parker. They all
handle about the same and take a little finessing to get them to ride
right in a chop. As I am sure you know the whole Parker ride thing
stems from the wheel being way to far forward. But if you control the
speed and the trim you can take them any where. I have Bluefin fished
40 miles from shore with mine and it sits great at anchor. I will tell
you I have never owned a boat that is this fast on the inshore fishing
either..... I was never much of an outboard guy till I fished these
Yamaha's Killer power, and Quiet!
Anyway, My oldest daughter just had a hula 4th birthday at the house
today..... Got to move the furniture back in place... Ha Ha Ha
take care.... Chris

Hi Chris,

I've seen your boat on yachtworld, and if I was in the market today, I
would seriously consider it. However, I'm in somewhat the same
situation as you in that my wife just had our second child 3 weeks
ago. I'm thinking early '07 for the new boat.

Can you shed any light on the way your boat rides versus the 2520?
