In looks and performance, the Shields is entirely worthy of her distinguished heritage. The idea for her creation originated with Cornelius Shields, one of America's most eminent racing yachtsmen and dedicated enthusiasts. The Shields Class concept of an ideal, moderately sized, low maintenance, high-performance, open cockpit, keel-ballasted sailboat was translated under Olin Stephens' personal supervision into plans and specifications by the New York firm of Sparkman & Stephens. Cape Cod Shipbuilding's skill and craftsmanship and extensive fiberglass building experience, combined with the use of today's best construction materials, turned this superb design into a lively, well-balanced boat that is fast in light weather and extremely able in a hard breeze. The hull and deck are made of hand-laid fiberglass and color-impregnated gelcoat. The one-piece molded hull is bonded to the deck with fiberglass, while still in the molds, to assure true and consistent lines. The molded parts; the fiberglass hull, the fiberglass deadwood, and the lead keel are securely through-fastened with 3-4-inch silicon bronze bolts. The two main keel bolts accept the attachment of eye nuts and are of sufficient strength to hoist the entire boat. The fiberglass rudder is molded around a 1 1-8-inch bronze shaft and is secured at the top by a bronze-lined rudder port and at the bottom by a special bronze casting faired into the lead and bolted in place. Standard equipment includes teak toe-rails, coamings, handrails on for deck, floor grating and contoured cockpit seats. Teak console for halyard winches and cleats mounted vertically with step. Flotation compartments are located under the fiberglass seat and floor and hull liner. Fore and aft watertight bulkheads with fiberglass hatches with bronze hatch dogs. Tiller varnished ash with chrome-plated bronze hardware. Painted boot top stripe and antifouling paint on bottom.
