It looks like the Eisnors tend not to check their email. I was just sitting on their boat on Sun night (made for a rough start to Monday morning).
As I will be seeing them on the weekend I will get their phone number. Send me your email address and I will send it to you next week. I will let them know to expect your call.
I know two couples with Newport 28 Mk II. Both love their boats. They are well appointed below decks and have reasonably nice lines. The draft is 5'' 2" on the fin model and less on another version. Of the two boats I know the 28 is either tiller or wheel steering. We also have a 30 at our club. Nobody I know has said anything negative about these boats. While they are not racers they also do not appear to be pigs.
