    Storing an 1801 in SD

    It’s hard for me to justify paying more to store the boat than to own it! I am learning pretty quickly that storage is not cheap but I guess that’s just the way it is! Thanks

    Storing an 1801 in SD

    Unfortunately the KOA is also full. I placed an inquiry with camp land. The club is a little gnarly with the membership fees and then quarterly assessment fees. Thanks guys hopefully I get some better luck so I don’t have to sell the boat...

    Storing an 1801 in SD

    Good morning, Just moved to Carlsbad and plan on fishing out of SD or mission bay. I had space to store my boat at my old house but currently do not. A slip is out of my price range so I need some dry storage suggestions. I would like to have it close to mission or sd bay. I found a cool spot in...

    I have a Parker 1801. I really like the boat but I have only fished inshore so far to get comfortable. The boat kicks butt and I’m going to start making the run to the Coronado’s soon

    From what I have seen it looks like Santa Barbara is your best bet on size. They seem to crush big reds and ling all the time.

    Rod for tranx 400

    I have the Phenix Hybrid 809XH Deckhand Rod and it works great. Use it as a surface iron set-up

    Is the tranx worth the extra money

    I can’t speak to the daiwa because I have never owned one but I have the 400 and 500 Tranx and love them

    Mid-life crisis boat options?

    If you are in the 1801 market check the east coast. I bought one and had it shipped and got a lot nicer/newer version for less. is a great search engine that searches craigslist and the internet for you. Always willing to help if you have any questions on validating the boat or my...
