astm216, I want to apologize for stepping on your thread. I am still kind of new to forums and get carried away at times.

Keep us posted, Thanks

Also, there is a time and place for the modified V hulls (less deadrise) as well. Makes for a much more efficient hull which can also run in shallower water...downside is the pounding in chop.

Maybe I'm not getting your terminology here, or which manufacturer you're referring to, but a modified vee (like a Carolina Skiff) is still a flat bottom boat. A Vortec Sea Hunt 23 (18 degrees) or any of the Gamefish series (21 degrees) or a custom Carolina boat of the same size (8-10 degrees) aren't "modified vees" just because they're not 24 degrees at the transom. Or are they modified vee because of variable deadrise?

Yes, you are absolutely right. I prefer the DV but didn't mean to imply that the Parker MV's are not as good. I think the Parker MVs are 16 degrees and the DVs are 21 degrees. Depends on your needs, that's why they make both.

I think SeaHunt has 18 or 21 hulls.

I think Linwood Parker will sell every boat he makes. No problem. Been around since the 60's, must be doing something right. Doubt you will see them sold at a "Superstore" any time soon....

Chiming in a little late, but I have spent a lot of time on a 25' Parker pilot house and can say from experience that it will beat the hell out of you when some other boats may not. Hope this helps!

Did you read the quote I responded too?

What you typed makes no sense at all. I never said anything about their sales or their dealers.

Btw do you know who designs Sea Hunt boats? You need to know that to get my joke. (I'll give you a little hint...he has the same job that the person in your post has)

Deadrise means less than hull design. A 24 Pathfinder does not pound at all and it's a 15 degree deadrise. Other boats with the same deadrise run like a piece of plywood with an outboard on the back. Parker's hull design causes the pounding, not the deadrise.

Please explain how I am ignorant? Anyone with any boating knowledge knows that boats with similar deadrise will perform differently based on hull design.

A 34 Yellowfin has a degree less deadrise than a 32 Boston Whaler. So using your vast marine knowledge, the Whaler rides better?

Deadrise at the stern means little if the hull is poorly designed. Ask a naval architect if deadrise alone determines the performance of a hull.

Agreed...from my earlier post...

"As for ride, the science behind ride is a combination of Deadrise, entry angle, weight (heavier less pounding) and beam. If those things are similar the ride will be similar. Keep in mind that Parker makes deep Vs and not so deep Vs."


That's all there is to it....the other variable being the actual sea state that you are running in....which will affect which of the above varibles have the biggest impact...In a larger chop/swell where the boat is coming mostly out of the water I'll argue deadrise is the most important....in a close wind driven chop bow entry is most important....every one of the factors above comes with a trade off....the trade offs in a Parker were considered very carefully over the past 50 years of them making boats...neted out, Parker focuses on Seaworthiness, simplicity and longevity....trading off bling and amenities....

Also I agree that running 30+ mph into most any chop/swell in a Regulator (for example) with a narrower beam/ deeper deadrise/ sharper angle of entry will give you a smoother ride than a Parker.....BUT...when you get where you are going...stop the engines and start fishing, the narrow beam and sharper deadrise will roll a LOT more...Personally most of my fishing is done drifting live bait...the other trade off is that the deeper V and sharper entry angle is less fuel efficient....requireing more power for the same speeds....

If a deep V Parker is run right it provides a smooth ride, if a Regulator is run wrong it still provides a smooth ride....either way the Parker will roll less if you are not running.
