Re: Trying to rate/classify my Newport 17
priceless9192 and abarnhart I just purchased a Newport 17 a month ago and haven't had it on the water does need some minor work but is worthy of sailing. I purchased this boat for nearly nothing. Just curious if your still sailing yours being a couple years since postings. I have also read mixed reviews, pros and cons that doesn't bother me much as this is my first sailboat (other than a Snark which I enjoy sailing). I have one (of many) questions does the mast have a support post under it in the cuddy, my boat does not have the feature or at least did not come with the boat. I have a Lockley Newport 17 1981.
Thank you for any help / information
