Chris Parker’s daily call on our Single Side Band radio has been as routine and welcome as our morning cup of coffee. Chris is the Chief Forecaster for the Marine Weather Station. He began forecasting the weather when he was 8 years old and turned pro after years cruising the Caribbean in his sloop Bel Ami. He came to our attention when we were in Zihuatanejo Mexico. After hearing of our plans to go through the Panama Canal, our bar companion (a cruiser who had been in the Caribbean) praised Parker’s thorough and insightful reports. We began picking up his reports while still coming down the Pacific Coast (anyone can tune in for free). After listening to his reports and his tailored recommendations to his subscribers, we began our own subscription in the fall of 2015. For the last year we have listened avidly to his reports and called in with specific questions to supplement our other weather sources. Just recently, we renewed our subscription. For more information about his services see the link below.
