Just within the past few days I closed my purchase of a 17' Chris Craft Mahogany Ski Boat. An antique classic, but one that skims beneath the radar, because the Chris Crafts that I skied behind back in the 50ies had Gray marine 6 cylinders. Large wakes, but not so much for speed. This one came with a Chevy 283 from the factory. Oh Yeah! Some thing that one can really work with. What I thought I knew about wood boats (plywood) does not apply to Mahogany wood as I soon found out when I met Loren Eslinger, Sales Representative for POP Yachts. Listing agent for boats,that I was investigating. Mahogany is a wood unto its self. Open grain. What I learned from Loren and making requests about different boats in different parts of the country. I learned that POP Yachts has a massive coordinated system of obtaining the information that the buyer needs without leaving your computer. They bring it to you via their agents in close up pictures, in my case, that told the story that was important to me. There are three agents involved in putting my mahogany dream together that deserve a shout out,and they are Loren Eslinger, Area Rep, Randy Harrell, Local Rep. and Rusty Kline, Closing Agent. All very professional. Very smooth operation all around. THANKS GUYS!!
