I would have to agree with NYC. Comparing the Parker 23 SC and the 21 CC is like comparing apples to oranges. The most popular application for the 21 CC is flats and bay fishing where the 21 deadrise would be detrimental. However, I am sure the 21 deadrise on the 23' comes in handy when venturing into rougher seas. Personally, I think that if you are looking for a no-frills fishing vessel, Parker is the way to go.
