cncphotoalbum.com has an original brochure for the Newport 28 II (it was C&C designed) but I couldn't tell from the drawings whether the cut-out was a factory option. My wife's cousin's Newport 28 does not have one. (He has been very happy with the boat and has gotten many years of use out of her, by the way.)

I like Keelhaulin's idea of lifeline(s) across the opening with a fold down boarding ladder. That's a decent customization.

I don't think it was a factory option, as the manufacturer was not in the business of customizing hulls. These boats were factory built like Chevy's and Fords - to a price point. Maybe toward the very end, Capital might of starting considering doing something like this (to save the business), but that woud have been in the '90s.

My first boat was an '84 Newport 28 MkII. Still miss that boat... Jaschrumpf, have you joined the Newport email list here on Sailnet? It's a great resource for any Capital Yachts boat owners.

The N28 is a great little boat. Lots of fun to sail, and has more room with the bulkhead mounted table than other 28-footers. The C&C designed hull will provide plenty of good performance, too.

I won't be needing a fold-down boarding ladder. Swimming voluntarily in the Chesapeake Bay isn't something I'm planning on doing. If I had her in a nice lake, or down in some nice ocean-influenced water, maybe. The Bay looks too much like the Ohio River I grew up next to -- yuck.

The drop-in board is looking like my best option.

What year is it? In terms of customizations from Capital; it was done here and there. There is a 41' custom I know of (interior is totally different; opening portlights, etc); and another 41' that has a swim step transom on the owner's website.

There was an inquiry about the cutout on the transom for a red hulled N28 about a year or so ago on the email forum. At the time I thought it was non-original but now it's hard to say because it looked exactly the same as this boat.

She's a 1975 model. Not the Newport II, AFAIK, just the original design.
