Hello Parker owners
I have a 26 Osprey with enclosed cabin.It is so nice to have the enclosed cabin
to seek refuge from the heat.It is definitely cooler in the cabin than it is out
in the sun.With 2 side windows,cabin door and front center window open you get
all the air flow that you need.And when it is cold out you can still go out and
not worry about freezing.You will find with the enclosed cabin you will use your
boat more often summer and winter.
I have a aft steering station on my boat and I would not be without it.It was
worth every penny .I use it for docking solo and for trolling.You can adjust
trolling speed and adjust auto pilot without going inside cabin.It is also great
for maneuvering to picking up crab traps or lobster traps in your area..You
will use it everytime out.....

>I have a 2320DVSC with notch transom and the second station. The
2nd station is great for docking single handed and running through
go-slow zones. It was worth the extra money, does not take up too
much room and really does add flexibility. I can see in to the
instruments and out the windshield but not as good as that fella
with the attached 2nd station. With sliding side windows there is
plenty of air no matter how hot it may be at anything over trolling
speed. The flip out windshield is good for slower speeds. I leave
the door open and hooked but aided by a bungee cord around the
doorknob as the hook and eye is not strong enough for banging
around. Plenty of air and I would never go back to a canvas top even
for the lack of maintenance on a hard top alone! The cabin is hot
when I first open the door but cools down fast. I'm upriver on the
Sakonnet R. in RI and we do everything from freeze to fry through
the season not too different from L.I. good luck!
