Beneteau differences

msl,

There may be some structural reasons for this, but I just read in Cruising World, that the $485K Southerly 135 (45'') uses cast iron for its swing keel and the "grounding plate" structure which holds it. Lead may be preferable by most sailors'' opinions, but even some very expensive boats use CI.

For whatever that''s worth...
