    Baitwell pumps: Shurflo 1500

    Parker 2510 Stainless Bow Rail For sale $500 obo

    It would depend on what year your 2520 is? I think the earlier models (pre-2007) had 6 stanchions. I would have to get a total length measurement for you, so you can see where it lines up at the back. I would guess the front 5-6 stanchions should fit in the OEM holes.

    Permatrim and 18" trim tabs

    My Parker 2320 build - Bangarang

    I agree with Brett, a permatrim is a great addition and it's a huge bang for your buck. Also, a four blade prop will also help with the stern lift. Both the permatrim and four blade prop will lower your planing speed to 16-18knts, depending on your weight. I average 2.3mpg per 150g tank of gas.

    What transducer do you have on your Parker 2320

    Anyone pop off the deck of a Parker 2310 to see under the deck and inspect gas tanks and lines?

    What do you mean by pop off? Is your deck screwed down? I have a 2310 and my deck is solid, so it would have to be cut out to access the gas tank. Luckily my gas tank (knock on wood) doesn't leak or at least I can't smell any gas in the bilge or access covers. Hopefully you don't have a leak, I...

    WTB Parker 2320

    I agree with Billy on his assessment, and those are some of the reasons I got the 2310. I got mine from michigan, and had it shipped out. Isenglass is nice when its cold, and the boat is a dry boat. Try to get one with the outboard bracket, you can alot of deck space and a large ice/kill box.
