    I got lucky. I was going to order one and was just browsing boattrader.com. Saw it Listed as a “demo” 2016 2320 that had never been registered. So I called and talked about it and made an offer. Once accepted I flew out to inspect the boat and found it only had .6 hours on it. Wasn’t even demoed. Maybe that’s what they had to do to advertise the price on the internet. Then I organized the shipping and it was a done deal. Got a full warranty and 5 years on the motor.

    I got mine in Georgia . Took 2 months to find . Being delivered as we speak. The east coast is the place to go it seems for these 2320s

    That’s awesome. Congrats. Too much demand on the west coast for these boats. Low supply + high demand = high prices.

    Just installed the transducer last night.

    For the total scan , where did you get that fitting that is protecting the wire coming out of the hull? Is it some sort of bulkhead fitting . Looks nice

    Looking good Joe. East coast is the way to go. My Parker 1801 just got here. The money you save for a new or new'ish boat (like mine) pays for a lot of the upgrades.

    Jmart, that clamshell cover for the totalscan looks like it’s under the water line. Even if you caulk it it could cause some major leaks in the future. I’d double check it and consider maybe raising it above the water line.

    We sealed it very good I don’t for see any issues. But thanks for the heads up. My guy that has been doing this has done the same way many times no leaks.

    But why risk it? Could have just went a foot higher. Seems like an odd choice, nonetheless looks like the build is cruising along. Keep us posted

    i hear yah. Not sure for the 2016, but my 2012, parker used wood in the transom. I'd just keep an eye on it and stick my hand around there from time to time just to make sure no water gets in. Good job with the upgrades! Loving it.
