Powerplay is just the opposite: 1. Never going to be a raceboat, 2. Complex interior (a/c, enclosed head, huge cabin)
3. They only made 12, 9 of which are still alive and running.
4. Limited run boat makes for a tough resale for big money, this boat now has history and it will make for a very tough resale for anyone.

The original owner has access to 525's/ XR's with less than 100 hours at a ridiculously low price and he even said the boat is toast, not worth fixing. He likes using the analogy that boat was like Cheryl Tiggs in her prime and now she is a beat, crack whore..........

What has happened to that boat just plain sucks!

What happened to the other 38's if only 9 out of 12 still run?

How much is it worth after the rerig in todays crappy market, with most everyone knowing it's history as the sinker.
I know the hullsides are cored with foam (saw the cutouts at the Sunsation plant). Not sure about the deck or hull.

Some little plick in a 22' Stingray blew them out of the water as he lighted his afterburner; just after blowing by a Fountain.

Not that I know of. It was brokered for about 2 years at Hideaway Marina. The starboard skeg was busted off at the bottom but that doesn't matter now that the drives are missing.

One was the pulse drive boat that needs motors, Sunsation cut a hull in half to design their F4 (pics on the Sunsation site showing the two halves being carted away) and this one that played submarine.

The sweetest one around is identical to the sunk boat but with navy hullsides instead of black. Boat has been re-rigged this year with 700's/NXT's and has about 100 hours total hull time. Boat is out west and stored in a climate controlled warehouse and looks like it has been stored in a time warp.

Of course the fastest 38 PP is "Can't Touch This" with monster Cobra power and 6's. Boat runs over 115......

I've seen video of Can't Touch This. That boat sounds incredible. I would love to be there to see that boat run.
