But... it's a good habit to have.
My Parker is a 1996 2520 MVSC with a 1997 Yamaha 225 OX66 on a bracket.
I'm the second owner of this boat... The original owner bought her off the lot of a Parker dealer in Delaware in 1998. It appears that she was ordered by someone who intended to fish her offshore, as she had almost every option available from Parker at the time except for the cockpit driving station.
That oversight (the rear station) was fixed just before Christmas :wink: , as I had my dealer install a rear station that I bought last year which had been removed from a 25' C-Hawk.
The two most unusual features of my boat are the open-back pilothouse, and the fact that she has three factory fuel tanks... A 127 gal main fuel tank, and 47 gal port and starboard tanks. Let me tell you... with over 200 gallons of fuel on-board, that 225 Yammie struggles to get on plane! I only filled all three tanks one time, and that was one time too much. These days, I generally only fill the main tank. :lol:
Its taken me two seasons to get my boat close to the way I want her, but I still have a few projects yet to do.
I love to see how others modify their Parkers, so project postings receive the most interest from me.
Looking forward to seeing this forum take off!
