I like Keelhaulin's idea of lifeline(s) across the opening with a fold down boarding ladder. That's a decent customization.

I don't think it was a factory option, as the manufacturer was not in the business of customizing hulls. These boats were factory built like Chevy's and Fords - to a price point. Maybe toward the very end, Capital might of starting considering doing something like this (to save the business), but that woud have been in the '90s.

My first boat was an '84 Newport 28 MkII. Still miss that boat... Jaschrumpf, have you joined the Newport email list here on Sailnet? It's a great resource for any Capital Yachts boat owners.

The N28 is a great little boat. Lots of fun to sail, and has more room with the bulkhead mounted table than other 28-footers. The C&C designed hull will provide plenty of good performance, too.
