|SERENA is an Admiral's launch
built by Kettenburg Marine during WW2 for the US Navy. She is currently
(June 2003) under the stewardship of Che Bellman who is slowly but surely
returning her to her former glory. |

|We trucked MACKINAC TIME from Los
Angeles to the Concordia Yacht Yard in South Dartmouth, MA. She spent the
