Ahoy, Sailors and fellow Newport 212 owners!
Greetings folks from Sailnet!
I have a 1975 Newport 212 and love it so much, it made it into my Pre-Nup. I pulled this tub out of the woods, where it had been for twelve years and yes, it was rough. Four months of restoration, begging, borrowing, stealing, making parts, one sailing lesson, and a book and I've been sailing her for 5 summers. The swing keel was a complete disaster as it appears to be for others I read about, but other than that, she's a dream. I love this boat and I'd love even more to get any and all information on it, which is scarce. Please drop a line, especially if you own one.
