    I want a parker BUT?????

    You can if you want.... You would need to setup some kind of pole though.... Depends on outboard also.... a 200 wont get it done. A 225 with a 15 pitch prop probly would. I don't know if I would want a pilot house on lake mead though. I think a center console would fit your needs better.

    Skipped the 371, spottie Sunday

    The plan was to kill it on the 371 again. However that wind swell didn’t drop enough and the ride out of mission bay made the wife a bit uncomfortable. 5-6ft at 10 seconds and a bit steep at the entrance. We made it out and the wave heights didn’t really drop outside in the deeper water. Made...

    Fish ID?

    ok I've now seen like 3 of these and can figure out what it is.... Half way back from the 279 I stopped on this fish (I think). It's looks like a stingray but the body swims vertical like an opah. It's grey on color, probly about 3ft around. Usually swimming with the top fin flickering around...

    I see where ur looking and I understand, but at the end of the day the market dictates the price. Maybe add some value of in reassurance of the motors?

    Agree with everything stated above. I see boats fish that kelp line all the time, sporties too. Ive had much better luck south of the San Clemente pier also. A little further from the harbor keeps the pressure off. When the wind is light i go offshore because i have a small boat, but pay...
