Finally got my Parker. I thank God, and my wife for making it possible! Thanks to Joe Oliver at Johnson Marine for all his help and advice. I took her out for the first time mon. the 8th. to the Channel islands in so. cal and she performed flawlessly. Being a previous boat owner(2301 seaswirl) I had my concerns about the 14 degree deadrise, but this didn't seem to be a problem in the 50 miles i put on her that day. Kudos to Parker for making one tough boat with a lot of deck space. My buddy Aaron and i were able to put 16 rock cod on the boat our first time out and it was awesome to be back on the big pond. Thanks to all the Parker owners who write their experiences on this site who helped me make my decision to get back in the game. Also the F150 ran smooth and strong. Good luck and tight lines to all you Parker owners out there.
