BTW, the Newport 27 manual was very helpfull Thuesday when we were cleaining it up. It took me an embarasingly long time to find the master switch, but I got it started up.

The original manuals are so old and poorly typeset has anyone thought of starting a project to make a modern manual? Things like Color Wiring diagrams and more photos could be very helpful. Even if one were made to cover all boats and the differences just pointed out.

I would be happy to type up any of the texts that I could as a starting point, but would need an editor that new what they were doing and pictures would be a help.

At the end we could publish it as a PDF for all future Newport owners to have something to have as a reference.
