I owned a 1964 27' ChrisCraft Constellation. It was carvel planked mahogany and I still love the looks and and great utility of those boats. I found it was imperative to keep it well maintained as to keeping rain water out of the boat. Rain/fresh water getting in all the little cracks/crevices and staying wet causes rot and can be a bear to keep ahead of especially in a wet warm climate like the Texas and Florida Gulf Coast.
