    We just launched this 2019 2820 XLD with 300 Yamahas today in Anacortes, WA for a customer. I'll post more about the boat and build after tomorrow. Going to run her around all day, get her dialed in and then give her a bath. Customer is going to take her to fish the Roche Harbor Salmon Classic this weekend. Might be the nicest Parker floating when she's done. She's loaded.

    What a beautiful boat.

    I wonder what the fuel economy is, fully loaded?

    Prob 1mpg @ 27mph full fuel and ice. Prob .7 @ 27mph if it had a 120 gallon PE tank and a Marlin tower like Duane has, Socal setup. @NextLevelParkers builds the 28s with Furuno side scan sonar.

    Someone sure got a beautiful boat. I'm sure there is lots more customizing to go on this beauty. Is that a touch screen above the 2nd station?

    Edit...whats up with a kicker on a twin engine boat, is there something I don't know?

    This boat is in Washington. Kicker is for salmon trolling. A 9.9 is a lot cheaper to replace than a 300. I know guys that put hundreds of hours a year on there kicker trolling for salmon.

    The next logical question is steering on that engine...auto pilot, linked to the 300s? Ive never seen anything like that down here but in general its a different kind of fishing here. I might be interested in that on my 2820. What speeds would that setup have? slow troll for salmon, is it quick enough for tuna?

    Generally the Kicker is hooked to the mains via a tie rod. Trolling for salmon is between 1.5 to 3.0 Knots. @FHisherman could probably answer some questions better for you. When we tuna fish up here in Washington, for Albacore we use the mains. Trolling for them we generally do 5 to 7 Knots.

    Auto pilot drives the mains, steers the kicker by tie in to the mains. We can put big hours on a kicker trolling for salmon. Kicker isn't fast enough for tuna troll though.

    We were getting 1.3 MPG at 30-32 MPH. Not fully loaded, but full of fuel and H20. No bait tank yet...Flat inland water. She might do better when broken in. She's do worse in ocean swells. So much power the 32 MPH was at 3500 RPM. Lust loping along.

    It was nice meeting the new lucky owner and deck mates of “Fortuna” at the Friday Harbor Salmon Classic. That weather put that boat to a good test. Docking in 60 mph wind was not easy though for sure! I was afraid of running into the “Fortuna” and luckily backed into my slip and let the wind do the work. You guys made my kids day when you gave them the tickets for the drawing, even though they didn’t win. Thanks guys hopefully see you up in these parts again!

    Wow, 20 knots while underway. Is that at 16" extension on the transducer? I did see that the vessel must slow to 15 knots to deploy it.
    Furuno Searchlight to be specific.

    That’s a Burnewiin product. I have 4 of their rod holders on my boat. They’re great, and make good stuff!
