Newport 28 or 29?

Hi folks,

New to the forum, and excited about possibly getting a sailboat soon..

I've got a line on what is reported to be a 1976 Newport, that lists 28' length on the pink slip but measures 29.5 according to the owner. No swimstep or anything funky, either... I could only find data on 28's for that year, but maybe something else snuck through.

It's been completely gone over recently and looks to be in good shape - from pics and Coast Guard inspection, but it's a couple hours away from me so I've not checked it out yet. Probably will do soon..

So - any idea how to tell "which" this is?
And anything to look for in that year Newport?
