Thank's for the input!
Thank's for all the replies.
Just to respond to a couple of points brought up by some of the respondents.
First, I do tend to get emotional about a few things in life. Boats, and women.
Maybe not in that order.
I think though for my emotions to have affected my contact with a broker to convince him/her of my intent or seriousness, there would have had to have been some communication other than the unanswered phone queries, email queries, and the 30 second call that I was told that I should call back.
Second, I've never had to pay an agent in my purchasing, any automobiles, aircraft, heavy equipment, other boats, or manufacturing equipment that I've purchased over the years, why should I need to now.
And at any time when an agent was involved it was during real estate, both commercial and residential acquisitions, and his/her fees were paid by the seller.
That's the brokers job, to represent the seller, and respond to, any or all inquires as to the listings he has, and earn his commision from them.
Some individuals may find it beneficial to hire an agent to act on their behalf, it's just not something I feel I need.
All I'm looking for is reasonable timetable in responding to my inquiries. I didn't receive any response's, and still haven't.
I rarely gripe about anything, especially anything to do with boats, but I've always found when buying a boat, the search is part of the enjoyment.
I won't give up, and I appreciate all of your comments.
I'll just dig harder and reward the broker that works for it with a commision!
