Default Ole at Parker Yachts

Thank You !

I was in South Carolina at the time,and with property and companies to take care of.Hurricane coming to South Florida ,I called Ole and asked for help. Not only did he pick up my boat but,he also placed in my driveway.He triple locked the trailer of his he let me use.

Thanks Ole,

Ole is a class act. I hope he fairs well in the storm.

Thanks all. I appreciate it.
We where lucky down here. (I musta admit I was counting on that).
My thoughts go out to the people North, East and in Haiti whom have real hardship.

A Parker pilot house is my dream boat. This makes me even more interested in the brand. Thank you for sharing.

Although I would like to take credit, I cannot.

You sure about that?
Growing up in the Caymans as Ole was a b-----.
There was only ONE Ole Parker, I got away with nothing.
Besides if they named Ole your mother musta meta Norwegian.
Now, Ole', that is another matter.

Ole,
It looks like some fine folks appreciate you. You should be getting a few pies for Thanksgiving or bottles of your favorite beverage for Christmas.
Kudos on customer service.

Thank you! Everyone. I am flattered.
Hurricanes are funny things.
When you are in my business. My phone starts ringing from friends I haven't heard from in awhile or ones I never knew I had.
We aren't the biggest, we aren't the cheapest, but I would like to think we do what we can, when we can.
We didn't get hit, and I'm tired.
Still have to deal with putting my own personal stuff back together.
Here is a flashback to 1989 and Hurricane Hugo. I was 29, and this was how the fridge was stocked.
Bucksport, SC.

Ha! Looks like you were well prepared for Hugo!

Glad to hear you escaped this one unscathed. Or, at least, unscathed by the storm -- customers and long-lost friends are a different story.

Looks like a Ballyhoo. Is it real small? Tail and mouth look right.
