    Took a big leap forward in boat ownership this week and bought a 2007 2320 SL with a 250 Yami on the back. Belonged to a six pack charter who was selling it to pay for his newer 2520. Boat is super clean and other than mounting downriggers, I have very little work that I have to do.

    I've been fishing and boating all of my life up here in Northern Calif, current boat is a 20 ft Duckworth. Fish the SF Bay and ocean on about a weekly basis, this will be a huge improvement.

    Nice! If you use the dive ladder, suggest tying a rope to it...the plastic holding clip can twist and away it goes into the deep...

    Thanks guys. Spent yesterday cleaning, doing some repairs and shopping for supplies after figuring out how I’m going to mount downriggers.

    I looked at that boat, but you had already bought it!! Haha. Congrats!! I did find and buy a 2001 Parker 2510 down in Long Beach

    Question for you, I just bought 2 Scotty 2106 downriggers for my boat and was wondering where you mounted yours. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Nice, if you don't use the swim step ladders then sell it or store it some where or else it will walk away and it's expensive.

    First mod on a Parker is to put in a Seaspension to save your back.

    Obviously you own a Parker, and a lot newer than mine, but I wonder why people say Parkers ride so rough? I have an 01 2510 modified V walkaround, I think the boat handles the waves great. My home port is Morro Bay, where we get some big swells. I’ve been out in rough shit and thought the boat did ok. I guess just personal opinion, but I really like the Parker. Had a 22’ Striper before, and talk about beating you up!!! Comparing the two is like comparing a Chevy s-10 to a Chevy duramax. Just my 2 cents

    Riding rough is not the point, most boats ride rough when the helm is way up front but a Sea pension pedestal takes a lot of pressure off the spine.

    I have Cannon Downriggers and I used the gimble mounting plates to mount them in the gimble rod holders. I wanted something that was easily entirely removable for when I'm fishing for other fish than salmon. IMG_0149.jpg
