Default When & Why did Bosco switch from PP to AT

Whats up with this. Did I miss somthing. I know that Powerplay has had their share of problems, but what boat company hasn't. Did Bosco jump ship and go over to Active Thunder after all the negativity between the two. I am not trying to start anything, this just comes as a real shock to me. Could someone shed some light? If not Bosco himself?

Is Bosco an employee or a prospective customer of the two boat manufacturer's that you've mentioned?

Go into the PP forum and all of Bosco's post that were made, now have the AT avitar on them. When ever you update an avitar it changes all of the posts that you ever made.

I was at Power Play a few days ago, and Dan said Jon turned in two weeks notice and went to Active, He spoke highly of Jon and there were no hard feelings, to me that showed alot of class on Powerplays part. I pretty sure Jon won't be using multiple names and the PP/AT battles are behind us.

PP has many 38 on order and AT has a bunch of the 37avh on order, and performance boating is much better because of it. I was reading in Powerboat that Wellcraft will no longer build Scarab because of custom builder and in south Fla we have a bunch. AT, Cig, Magnum, Pantera, PP, Dragon, Sonic, Concept, Motion, and Nor-Tech across the ally and probably alot more I'm missing all producing fine boats. Now if we can just get rid of Manatee zones

Chris and myself have known John and PowerPlay for over 10 years. I have spent alot of time on the phone with him and over cold beers. We will miss him from the PP stand point, but we wish him the best of luck @ AT! But I also plan on spending more time with John over that cold beer(s)!!!

Good luck & Blue Skies,
Robbie & Chris

Bosco has joined the team at Active Thunder . Last Monday (Sept. 9th.) was his first day! Congratulations on your move, and welcome to Active Thunder.

I think the smartest move a businessman can do, is surround himself/herself with the best, the smartest, most knowledgeable, and talented people that you can. Bosco definitely fills that order!!

Best of luck to you Bosco!!!!!

Welcome to the family John.
