The dealer where I bought my Parker had sent it out. I also had them anodize the rocket launchers black. That was a hassle because according to them they had to send them to Florida (I'm in California) which caused a delay in getting it installed. During the summer and fall months here in California and off the Baja Mexican coast the offshore fishing consists of finding floating kelp paddies which we call "paddy hopping". Having the crows nest makes it sooo much easier to spot even the smallest kelps as well as any other surface activity taking place. My only regret is not spending the extra cash to put in a second set of steering and power controls up there.
