Newporter 40...Jeff?

Lately I''ve been considering the Newporter 40. The reviews in Boat Check don''t say much, except that they are more or less wooden, though on Yachtworld they are listed as fiberglass or "other material". I know they are older boats, I suppose before GRP predominated. Does anyone know how they were constructed?

And also, how are the N40''s sea motion and general seaworthiness for open water?

Thanks in advance,
Chas.

reply to chas newporter 40 is mostly plywood construction overlayed with fiber glass it appears the ones i have repaired have very good hand laid material the plywood used is of good quality i have only repaired 2 in the last 8 years both were in good condition for being built in the 50s both boats were in salt water all there lives .the house and decks needed most the work years of rain water took its toll wood spars needed repair or replaced if you are looking for one to restore you can plan on spending some money and time but .. worth it in the end great old boats.
