NewportFixer is on a distinguished road
Hello from Michigan.

Hey Ed here. Ya I have been interested in sailing since I was a kid but never had the means to do it. Well a couple of years ago I stumbled upon a good deal on a Newport17. Mello Daze had not been on the water for a long time but I learned using my raggedy old copy of Royces sailing illustrated that all her rigging was still there. So I cleaned er up and headed for some water. And I went sailing (not expertly) but my mast stayed pointed up! And it was the begining of a hobby I am crazy about. So crazy that I cant stop myself from looking for bigger sailboats even though the 17 is perfect for the little lakes around here. Still - recently I attended an auction where a Newport 21 had been consigned. It looked as though it may have been run under a low bridge or somthing because it had been de masted. The boom is gone, the mast base is gone and one side stay cable is broken. other than that its a nice boat. I stole it, now I just need to gather up or fab the parts I need to sail it again. Any idea's?? I really need a boom or just eleven or twelve feet of that extrusion. I can make the rest if I have to. Shoot me a line.

Re: Hello from Michigan.

We have a place down here in Fort Lauderdale, FL called Sailorman, which sells used masts & booms at a reasonable price but I'm sure shipping costs may be an issue. There are also plans online to make a wooden boom. Some don't even use booms for their mainsail, though rare. Congrats on the boat!
