The mighty Parker ...

A short video taken on Saturday in the strong Easterlies we had. Blowing uo to 38mph but generated big rollers and not the usual confused seas.
This was a two RIB private charter, taken form the other RIB that was not having quite such an easy ride

Nice vid, yes ive seen your parker in some heavy stuff it tends to go through where as my Cobra goes over the top somewhat, I think weight could be helping also.

I agree superb video and that kind of performance is expected from the Baltic hull. This is a combination of three factors. weight, hull design and power pack

Ah yeah, but who'd be daft enough to build a huge big beast of a boat like that with all that power and then just stick a coupla seats on it so fellas could get their kicks?
