Not sure why the page is broken, but it says:

  Support for serialization comes in two forms:

     Classes number, debug_adaptor, logged_adaptor and rational_adaptor
have "pass through" serialization support which requires the underlying
backend to be serializable.
     Backends cpp_int, cpp_bin_float, cpp_dec_float and float128 have
full support for Boost.Serialization.

I should probably add cpp_rational to the list with full support too
(it's implicitly implied from the above, but not obvious!).

HTH, John.
