Re: New Old Boat

1970 Newport 27 built like a tank. Original Atomic 4. After 43 (yes FORTY-THREE) years still a great boat and we enjoy it about every weekend. Bought for $3500 with trailer two years ago and put maybe two grand in it since then.
Worth every penny and would do it again any day and twice on Sundays.
