Frers 38 Variants

Almost all of the Carroll Marine built Frers 38s have had their keels modified to increase stability. The original keel was a plain elliptical with a 7.0 foot draft. Some boats have an 800 pound bulb added. Others have a simple 250 pound extension. Both of these keels draw about 7.5 feet. There is one with a wing keel. At one time, the known mods were:
