  1. Walmart I got falken tires for 85 bucks every other store had them for 149. I also got delivery of all four the next day for frwe
  2. There are yellowfin along the beaches
  3. Yeah he loved bought it yesterday!
  4. Why don’t you try the beach side there is parking in far rock 24/7 during week. Go to shorefront parkway maybe 98th street. Some nice blues off the beach.
  5. Smart, once again strippers online saving the day. I didn’t think of that. Very good point. He has a messed up leg from work and I don’t think he would be able to flip the PA 14, I probably would have a very hard time flipping it. We will be going with the outback checking one out tomorrow.
  6. No fish here anymore I caught them all
  7. Buy a mate bike
  8. Thanks so much for the advice. Jones brothers I did look into them. I’ll check out sea Ox. I think I may just stick with the 1801 after all. I am really just going to check out different boats For the time being and wait for manufacturing to pick back up again. I remember breaking in a new tugboat and it was a nightmare things breaking left and right. Good point. Also didn’t think of maybe wanting to go up to a 25-27 in the future. Thanks again. Appreciate it. Opened my mind up to different points I didn’t think of.
  9. The only reason I want to buy new is because of the horror stories I have heard. I went through this in the past I spent over 450 dollars for a survey to be completed on what looked like a decent boat and it came back a pos broken stringers and what not. I work on the water every day on vessels of all sizes In all weather and I think I have a decent grasp on what I want but just really trying to figure out if I want the 21. I wouldn’t be heading offshore, maybe nearshore a mile or two out on the wrecks. Most of my fishing will be in the bays though. I have to weigh the pros and cons. I would buy used if the survey came back ok. I just feel with a new boat you know what your getting. I hate buying new but with the price not being much more money for new rather than used it makes sense. Do I want to buy a used boat that needs work? Maybe I just need to head on down to the dealer and see them first hand and go from there. I’m not dead set on a Parker I’ve checked out McKee, north coast, tidewater.... Parker just seems the most reasonably priced boat. Called 7 dealers, these past 4 months have been crazy supposedly with boat sales. Everything being sold. Will be waiting till late fall.
  10. Wow that’s an absurd deal. I’m waiting for the right deal. I’d rather buy new, especially the way people drive boats these days. But if I see the right deal I’m going to jump on it.
  11. How do you like north coast? I checked them out. I really like them. Did you buy new or used?
  12. I really want the 1801 it’s 20k cheaper, I would be able to trailer it with my smaller truck....I just don’t want to buy a 1801 and then wish I had the 21 on those bigger days. I’ll probably just bite the bullet and get a 21. I’ll be buying new or close to new.

  13. I have a 12 outback. My dad wants a hobie as well. He’s a bigger guy maybe 250 lbs. I found a 2017 pro angler slightly used but 14 ft long. He doesn’t have a truck just a 4 door jeep. Would the weight of it really be a pain in the ass to get on the jeep? Are they really That more stable than an outback ? Would it be better for him to just stick with an outback?
  14. It’s a center console. I work on the water for a living I know better than tj get a cabin, lol..... I think my wife is more excited than I am.
