    Let's talk shrimp pots

    Where we shrimp we only get 4 hours of open shrimp time.. So its the faster the better in getting shrimp into the pots. If I had all day to let pots soak, I'd probably go ladners to save storage space. Luckily i have a pretty big Deck too. that helps as well with the big Octagons.

    Yami 9.9 Trolling speed control

    It might not be as bad on your 25 as it is on the smaller motors running ethanol. If you let gas sit in the carb on the T8/9.9 it gums up over time of non-use. So what usually happens is it clogs the idle jet in the carb. I also use the ring free/stabilizer as well. Never can be too safe...

    Parker 2320 or North River 2500 OS?

    realistically, to keep the choices similar in price, you'd need to look at the 23' NROS. I think both are in the $90-95k range New. Biggest differences would be cabin bigger in NR, Cockpit bigger in Parker. Sides taller in NR. Ride would be very similar, maybe a tad less spray in 1/4tering...
