Nice boat! I sold my 86 Newport 28 back in May. I really loved that boat, but I wanted something bigger.
Anyway, when I first started sailing the Newport I was nervous for half the season. It was my first 'big' boat and I was worried that the steering would fail (wheel instead of tiller) or the engine would not work (inboard instead of outboar), or a through hull would fail and flood the boat, etc.
After a dozen trips or so I relaxed. It also helped a great deal when I got
my wife more involved and she could steer, operate the engine, trim sails,
that sort of stuff.
