Yeah, it never occurred to me that when I painted "Playa Cruiser" on the back of my mutant boat it was gonna look like it said "PLAY-ah Cruiser" whenever anyone saw it off the PLY-ah... that's why it's being re-christened "Land Yacht".

That's the best post I've seen in a while. Right on Brother.

I'd say install some steel sheet metal behind where the name is. Playa for Playa and magnetic Land Yacht name plate for the other 51 weeks.
