I was told by someone from powerplay that they were built off an apache 22" and modified. How many were built That is a good question, Very few in the classifieds and I have only seen about 6 or 7 of them. Where's ed? HeyCDF5 how about a photo of your?

I can't post pics, have to upgrade. Mine is the baby blue/pink one that was in MD. It's now white and I had the platform powdercoated to match HP500 blue. My buddy bought the other all white one and is having his platform done in red. Should be pretty cool to have two 25's in Cincy. Both will have decent power. Which one is yours?

Never mind, I guess I just had too many pics posted. This is mine now. The graphics on the deck are coming off this winter and I'll probably put a small powerplay logo on the back hull sides. And it's getting a scoop on the hatch!

Nice boat Northern, I'm still trying to figure out which prop is best. So far it's been a Hydro Q-IV. Tried a mirage + but seemed to be slipping pretty bad a cruise. (that was on 7 cylinders also) Going to bump up the hp this winter. I have not seen too many 25's, can't be that many made.

The boat does very well for a 25 footer. Biggest has been 2-3' in Lake Erie. Hit a couple 4' holes and fly's very level. Very solid, feels just as solid as my 28 Apache was. I miss the extra 3 feet but for a single engine 25 it handles it fine.
