where did the name POWERPLAY come from, or was it because of what Steve said " Powerplay, it was his personality"

Thanks for posting REAL facts Steve.

Most people don't know what a Powerplay is, have never boarded one and never saw the craftsmanship put into these boats by Dan and his crew, visited the factory

Very few boats can compare. That's the reality.

I know I was at the Powerplay Auction

I know I purchased the 38' Mold at the Auction but never left the Auction with it.

I know that Powerplay is gone

I know that when I moved offices recently I dropped Danny's Scarface desk that broke in a million pieces.

I know I still have two Powerplay signs that several people said they were going to come pick up and never did.

I know I have Danny's little sign that used to be in his office that said "Why buy a Cigarette when you can smoke one for Less"

I know nothing that is worth remembering now!
That's gotta be the longest post you've ever made!

Powerplay built a GREAT looking boat with top notch quality. It's a shame to see another great talent go down due to poor business practices. This happened many times in the past with Cigarette as well.

it sure did and a lot but some how some way it always came back, incredible the power that # 1 has in the name. 33 powerplay is a bad mother [email protected]#$. they take anything you throw at them

Very TRUE words. I know Powerplay doesn't have the name recognition that a Cigarette has, that doesn't mean they aren't up to par with a Cig....because they are

Danny was a very "take charge" kind of guy. It was his way or no way at all. I think that says it all

Outboard boat in MIAMI

Isn't the boat in question that was at MIAMI this year the same 2 year old boat that was at the MIAMI show in 2004 with a different engine hatch and bolster vinyl??? If it is, that boat is 2 years old and probably has a decent amount of hours on it.
