Our boat is a Parker 2300T Big Bay. These boats are rare and are perfect for our waters.   The boat has a deep V in the bow and a short tunnel in the stern which allows the boat to draft only 10."  The boat is powered by a Yamaha 250 SHO. To maximize the vessels shallow water capabilities the engine is mounted on a jack plate.  This vessel is very safe and has had a custom swim platform added for easy access to and from the water.  Parker overbuilds their boats which makes for a heavier hull and smoother ride.   The lower gunnels minimize the amount of sail allowed by the hull.  the boat has a large casting area and the back corners are fishable.  The boat is equipped with a cobia tower and second station, which gives us a distinct advantage when sight fishing.  It has a large live well and plenty of fish boxes. We use a Lawrence HDS 12 bottom machine and charter plotter with side scan capabilities.

The Boat has all the necessary safety equipment and then some.

The boat also has AM/FM and Blue Tooth Radio Capabilities
