My wife and I looked at C/L several weeks ago and her first comment was that there was a smell. The broker was like "what smell?". Any way I'm looking at a boat in Charlston
45' fd "Grand Rounds" someone said that you might have looked at it. Price is a little high but it has a remodeled interior and a little scruffy on the outside. Took it for a sea trial and found that approx 1500 rpm was about 9kts. Wide open was about 2100rpm and only 12kts.
Is this about the same as yours? I'm looking more towards the coast due to the cost of moving.
