Glad i spurred the count discussion....Serena is a small 38, 10'2" on the beam and 18000lbs of displacement. she's been on 7 for the 12 years I've had someone else manage this for me, so I'm comfortable with that unknowing success and will continue with the same config.
But one more time, anyone know the South Carolina stands first hand? they say they make 'em here and 'hot dip' 'em here too. The price is attractive especially considering free shipping. Any one have any?
