Bought a Capital Yacht-Newport 28

Thanks for everyone's help on the Morgan. We looked at a Newport 28 today, and for the family boat we are looking for, was alot more bang for the buck and needed a great deal less to get ready.

We got lucky that I ran in to who runs maintence in one of the marinas in Dallas just after we left the owner. In fact, I had I had been given his name to check out the Morgan, but never got far enough to make the call. Anyhow, I got some second opinions on issues I saw and made an offer. We buy her tomorrow.

Here are the photos I took today.

Newports are nice boats with lots of room below. We have a 1985 Newport 30 MKIII and she's been great. We've done quite a bit to ours, making her into ours. It's been fun and sometimes frustrating. We set the spinnaker for the first time recently. That was nerve racking. Although I must say I think the PO caused us the most trouble....the head's holding tank really shouldn't have had fluffy two ply tp in it....I've been keeping a running record on my site about the things we've been doing, be sure to keep a log of your adventures.

Have lots of fun with her, they are great affordable little boats. Congrats!!!
