Sounds like an interesting voyage!

So what do you think it is that makes the Parker so much better than anything else?

If I do the same turn with the Scorp. it slides, jumps and throw us to the side. I know that you are not supposed to write something bad about a rib, but after 300 hours in the boat, I do know what I m talking about when it comes to my Scorp doing a tight turn, period!

Do you think it's the hull design that makes the Parker better? The design of the tubes? The way it's built? Or perhaps just the set up?

I know that you have been unhappy with your Scorpion, but it's a generally well regarded boat so the Parker must be something really special to be so much better. As far as I can see there is nothing particularly radical about the design so I'm interested in what makes it so good. Any ideas?

John

Hi Swerib,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your interest in Parker ribs. Are you thinking your next rib and have short listed a Parker perhaps?

If I had written the report, which started this thread, then of course most would comment that I am blowing my own trumpet,just sales talk. What I can add is that the Baltic range was specifically designed for twin diesel commercial operation but has also proved to be very successful with twin large outboards in particular for SeaSafari type of fun where the passengers may also enjoy lots of thrill and excitement.

Martin is an experienced operator, he took his time in selecting his rib and having done many hours including the passage across the North Sea to Norway I would say he knows what he is taking about when comparing the performances of both ribs. Can't wait to read about this passage in the next issue of RI.
We value Martin's report as who better then such operator is more qualified to write such having done the test himself.

As you are based in Stockholm why don't you contact our distributor (see our web page for details) and perhaps even make contact with the operator of the rib in question and find out what he thinks of our ribs.
