Draft minus keel depth on Cape Dory 28?

I'm interested in a Cape Dory 28. I am interested in this boat because it appears that it can do it all, even long distance cruising when I get to that point.
I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me the draft of this boat minut keel depth. I was doing some research and as I understand, a boat with an angle of vanishing stability less than 140* might not right itself if capsized. The reviews say thet the CD 28' is a rugged and seaworthy full keel boat capable of making blue water passages so I was curious as to what this number would be for it.

Thanks,
James
