BTW, I am not planning to try what he did (assuming his recollection of the aforementioned events is accurate). I had another good outing with the kids in it today, this time with all 4 kids on Kerr Lake, sailing across the state line into Virginia. A couple of times when we had decent wind I pulled a boogie board behind. A couple of times when the wind dided down I had the little 2 stroke I sweated over actually run for minutes at time and push us in actual planned directions.

To arbarnhart,

I see that you are using an image for you photo of a Newport sailing in "unprotected waters". That is me in June 2006 sailing my Newport on Lake Erie, Ohio. I'd sometime trailer her "Whisper" to Pymatuning reservoir. I sailed her for 11 years singlehanded before selling in 2007 to someone in PA. Now I sea kayak for fun but miss Whisper. Have fun.

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

George

A Newport 17 was my first boat also, about 23 years ago. As I recall it did not have any support in the cuddy, but it was a long time ago...... Just a glassed in beam in the cabin top.
