Re: Ahoy, Sailors and fellow Newport 212 owners!
yep I guess if that happened then the keel would fail. This was in 1990 (seems like yesterday) so it was a little newer. I do remember wondering how I would ever get it out. When the keel was alot newer I thought the ramp system was a good way to do it. If the lifting tackle fails on my current boat (catalina 25) the boat would probably sink.
I always thought it was a newport 21. At that time I went to the boat us library on alexandria and found some info listed under newport 21. Thought that was a great boat. I have very fond memories of it.
