First time poster here, and I'd like to thank all the contributors and the hosts for providing countless hours worth of reading.
I've been doing a lot of research, looking for a trailer-sailor for my family. And found many comments about various models. They've been very helpful.
I found an ad for a 1975 Newport 22' sailboat. The pictures accompanying the ad seem to verify that this might be a Newport 212, but the owner must have the year wrong.
I've even picked up a copy of The Sailor’s Book of Small Cruising Sailboats, which mentioned this model.
Anyway, I'll get to the point. Are there any owner's of this model that might share some info, or pictures? The book I got said something about unusual centerboard lifting gear and storage. I would like more information. The boats owner is currently out of state and will be gone for another week, so I haven't seen this boat in person.
I would just like some more information prior to seeing it and/or making an offer.
I am a newbie sailor looking to sail in local NE Ohio lakes, and possibly short trips in protected areas on Lake Erie.
So, would any of you helpful people be able to shed any light?
