Re: Refurbish or scrap?
Yeah, after talking it over we've more or less decided to keep the outboard. If we are going to do anything more than occasional coastal cruising (which we probably won't even do a lot of that) we'll be doing it on a different boat. For our family size, the Newport is perfect for weekends on the river but probably isn't really adequate for any serious ocean cruising anyway. It would be different if it were just the two of us, but we have 3 kids living at home (two teen/young adults and a toddler) and are planning one more before we're done.
I will search some more for a deck fitting but I don't think we have one. We'll create one I think.
