    Lilly B 2003 2520xl

    I would like to share the improvements I have made over the past 10 years, so this post will be a little lengthy. I started of by getting some ventilation thru the cabin by installing a verado box through the hard top and rain shields over the cabin widows which help a lot in controlling...

    Fusion stereo

    I installed a fusion in my 2003 Parker two years ago. I mostly stream music from my phone. But I did add a Shakespeare little giant fm antenna which made a huge improvement. Radio stations on the Chesapeake kept going in and out and only a few stations receivable. It’s about 3’ long and cost...

I also had programming issues that are not in the manual, but when I placed a call to support they have always returned the call within an hour and provided excellent service and prompt answers but I have added about every bell and whistle they offer...

    Electrical Question

    Not sure if this is the problem and what model you have but it’s worth checking. I have a 2003 2520xl. A few years ago things started going a bit whacky with my gauges and such. Someone on here told me to check the aft buss bar and that it is hard to find as it is mounted where you cannot see...

    Best polish and wax for a older 2006 Parker

    That’s is my process also. I always wax twice, cleaner then top coat. The collonite cleaner wax is great and does a good job it is the pure wax that dirt clings to. So I use Maguires or 3M for the topcoat

    Brent I used collonite for years, then a couple of years ago I got 1/2 way thru waxing the boat and ran out. I then grabbed a bottle of 3M I had to finish the job. Mid way thru the summer I noticed the areas waxed with the collonite were holding a lot of dirt as opposed to the other areas. The...

It’s been 7 years and they have never come off and are still in great condition. I leave the port windows open all year long with the screens...

    Advice for bait tank 2120

    I don’t know if a 30 gallon is big enough for you but I have a “keep alive” portable bait tank on my 2520. They come with a circulating pump and aerator. Just fill mine up with a couple of buckets of sea water and alligator clips to the battery. They work great and totally portable


    I have tried everything from carpet cleaners to 50/50 water and bleach. The best way I have found is simple soap and water. I take the hose right into the cabin hose it down and wash it. Rinse it well. If it’s not a hot dry day put a fan in the cabin to hep dry it out. I do mine every spring for...
