Traveler and deck pictures
Hi I have been given a 1973 newport 30 this boat needs serious help and i need pictures of the traveler, winches, and other deck rigging. The stinger (her name) was under 3 feet of water for quite some time so everything needs replaced. ant and all help will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Fred, It may/will cost you more to bring this boat back, rather then buy another boat of the same age.

I'd have to agree with Freesail...if this boat was underwater for a while, the electrical system will have to be completely re-done...and many other things, like the cabin interior, upholstery, and interior bulkheads will probably need replacing as well...

Try for pictures. There are several 1970's era Newport 30's listed with pictures.

Yes, it may well cost you more than the boat is worth to bring it back to life. But on the other hand, if you carefully/slowly assess and survey the boat prior to beginning any work, you should be able to determine if it's worth restoring. Don't underestimate your the value of your own time and efforts and the reality of just how much time a project will take. Also, be advised that you'll gain a lot of invaluable knowledge from such a project as well.

If you can restore here for 5G, you will make about 10G for your labor, assuming you are doing the work.

You may want to look at the links above, then look at a Harken catalog and see what appears to be stock or equal and rehardware accordingly.

You would need to do some searching but there was a N30 that went up on the beach near San Francisco this summer. Sad case of a death on board and the sailors abandoning the boat out of grief. Odd case, but the boat was salvaged so the parts are probably available.
