    Default Spadefoot

    Most of you are probably familiar with spadefoot the carbon fiber Schumacher 28. The keel was redone by Jim Betts and I bought her hoping I would be able to lift the keel to get In to my mooring on a regular basis. While this is possible it's a pain in the ass. I have also had the rudder gudgeons reinforced with 4 layers of cf.....there is tons of gear. 3 aps, some 2017 spins ...newish Main and jib...2 extra mains a jib top, ais, etc etc ....email me about all the gear....The traileris good. It's a bit of a transpac weapon in right hands. 35k. She's in RI now but being limited to top half of tide not gonna work longer term.

    Cool boat. I was not familiar with Spadefoot. The design looks like an Alerion. And I'm guessing she's got some stories to tell about her wandering days. Is this the same boat: http://www.svshearwater.com/?p=1941

    Spadefoot has a lifetime of stories to tell. She's a Schumacher design but is more like an Antrim 27 than an Alerion (light displacement, lifting keel, etc.)
