Chicken head walked up to me making conversation about nine years ago on the shore of Beaver Lake in Rogers, Arkansas. I thought he was full of crap telling me about having worked for Powerplay and built boats for them. Man was I surprised when I later verified his story on here.

Never saw him again.

Buck.

Buck,
yeah, he worked there for quite a while and was a very meticulous rigger. Extremely talented individual!

Ron, it's me I will call you today. Great to hear from some of you! How about the rest?

Damn, Chickenhead. I forgot about him. Still see McNally on a regular basis. He's installing electronics on the big boats now. Koss stopped by a month ago. Joey did some airbrushing for me a coupla months back.
