    Hello all. Just thought I’d share some things I found really useful.

    1. Removing bench and replacing with 160qt yeti cooler.

    I keep my ice, food, drinks here which really saves space and doubles up as a cooler.

    Ernesto does all my custom work for the back rest as well as all things vinyl on my boat.

    2. Ernesto made this pocket that just goes on the driver side. These pockets are super useful for phones, small items, camera batteries etc. I think I paid $100 for it.

    Love the pocket storage our boy Ernesto made. Definitely need to get one made, never can have enough storage in these Parkers.

    Yea that pocket storage is a sweet idea! How did you mount it to the boat? And also does he make them to sell? If so id be interested in one.

    Yeah he makes it to sell. They are Velcro and just stick on to your current liner.

    Sick mods. I’ve got an RTIC 145 that I am going to do the same with. Thanks for the pics. It gives me a good idea of how to do the backrest. Is that also mounted to the carpet liner with Velcro?

    I made some custom YETI cupholders on my tower. The cabin could definitely use 1 or 2 more installed.

    I have 3 primary tackle bags depending on what style of fishing I do. I generally do the big bluefin thing...therefore, I really dont bring much for anything else. I just bring the bag for the style of fishing im doing. Dont really need much for so cal.

    Have you used any Stickbaits for those BFT. I want to try it but I don't want to spend 200$ and use the ones that Oliver (BigBassDreams) used when he was on your boat. Have you tried any from Savage gear or any other companies?

    I had a cabinet builder friend of mine make some shelving out of starboard that screws to the underside on both sides of the house.

    I cut a hole in the deck and gelcoated the inside for a fish box.
    I was able to get between 15 +19, 20-35# albacore in it with an ice slurry.

    Ive only used the pricier stuff. Sammy from Salt water tackle on the east coast. just put a package for me last year. I didn't really ask the price, but it was a big bundle of 3 rods, Stella, line, and 2-3 lures. I believe the name was "Sirens" and they go for about 80-125 each. I have not casted the cheaper stuff; yet.

    God dam your living the dream. Those Stella's aren't cheap. I'm wondering if the stuff from Australia works they have some nice stuff for a good price. I think ones jackfin I'm going to try and throw alot more this year.

    360 tuna has a good buy/sell section. You'll find all kinds of stickbait goodies there. Real good deals too on high end stuff.
