PowerPlay's new 38 is a really nice ride. Did any of you guys check out the straightness of the haul no ripples. Those bolster seats where over kill in construction but very cool. The Outerlimits boat"epoxy" hull had a nice paint job but a ripply one.

Chris,I thought the same thing, but didn't mention
it,for fear of getting my A$$ chewed off. The paint
on the one with Triples was mediocre at best. I
also thought it was just plain ugly, but then I
also thought the Fountain 35 Executioner with
the orange interior & fighter jet paint was ugly
to. I loved the 42 Executioner, just classic & priced
right! The 36 concept had beautiful paint work.

Maybe it was "non-skid''.

As a reply to an earlier post, I don't know how "epeek" could have tried to have a conversation with Mike Fiore when I know for a fact that Mike was not at the show.

The 42 OL had triple 525's and was not painted at the factory.

I have had 2 OL's; a 37 and a 42 and I will be getting
the new carbon fiber 39 in Feb. OL's glasswork is the best in the business. I am very happy with the performance and construction of their product. Having owned several other types of boats, OL's is by far the best.

He meant Paul, Not Mike. And he was right, Paul didnt have to much to say at all !! I dont know if he was having a bad day or what, but nothing like his son who is always pleasant to shoot the bs with or answer any questions

Short guy, salt & pepper beard,nice suit,kind of
bald. I thought that was him, otis 311 said it was
him,maybe I'm wrong. As for the paint it was
Richie Rich, I never said it was painted at O.L I also
never said they aren't great boats, I just said it had some
ripples in the deck. Apparently,others thought so to.

Thanks! We try hard to use the no B.S. approach. Too many ********** people in the biz.

I will pass on the feedback to Bryan. He and I greatly appreciate it
