Hello Parker owners
I joined your website to learn more about boats and how to fix problems.I do not
own a Parker.
I own a 2004 26 Osprey long cabin.It has a Volvo 5.7 GXI with duo prop.
I learned about the Parkers owner group from the Osprey owners group
<a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Osprey_Boats">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Osprey_Boats</a>
I am not advertising this site but you might find it of some use.We have the
same issues with ours boats that you do.I think some of the Osprey group have
also joined the Parker group.
Thank you Parker owners group

Eleven new members since the new year and only a handful of posts. We sure are
a
contented bunch. Even with the weather being bad for boating here there's still
no inter-
action. Maybe this site will turn out to be a sleeper that awakens once the
threshold of
Parker owners reaches critical mass : )

How many of you think that running a propane space heater in the pilot house is
asking to
be blown sky-high? Is there that much risk of igniting vapors from the built-in
tank, or is
propane leakage from the portable cylinder the main issue? I have never noticed
any fuel
vapors from the gas tank in the floor areas of the cabin, and I do get down on
all fours and
sniff regularly (old habits from my big boat days). There is a chance of vapors
coming up
through the floor drain hole so I plug that with a rubber stopper. The fuel
filler hose
chase is open to the cabin but is fairly high, so I don't think vapors are going
to climb out
of the bilge that far.

Any ideas? Am I living too dangerously?

I am getting somewhat tired of the continual Parker bashing found on another
site. I go
there for ideas to help support my boat use, not to be harangued by someone with
a bent
mind.

If interested, please check out the small site featuring my 2120 at
<a href="http://home.earthlink.net/~streagle/Frameset.html">http://home.earthlink.net/~streagle/Frameset.html</a>
A new page will be added soon to feature my current prop search. I knew nothing
about
them at first, but am getting a fairly good education via the internet.
