Probably the most difficult thing would be recreating the drawings like the mast layout, deck and cabin drawings etc.

BTW, the Newport 27 manual was very helpfull Thuesday when we were cleaining it up. It took me an embarasingly long time to find the master switch, but I got it started up.
The original manuals are so old and poorly typeset has anyone thought of starting a project to make a modern manual? Things like Color Wiring diagrams and more photos could be very helpful. Even if one were made to cover all boats and the differences just pointed out.
I would be happy to type up any of the texts that I could as a starting point, but would need an editor that new what they were doing and pictures would be a help.
At the end we could publish it as a PDF for all future Newport owners to have something to have as a reference.

Thanks, I look forward to learning more. I saw that the N-27 manual was there (why build boats at the same time so close in size?). It may give me a good start. The previous owner bought it from his brother and really didn't do much with her.
I am basically going to have to figure everything out from scratch. Read my post in general topics, but it looks like the first time I take her out it will be solo for about a 5 hour cruise. I may just leave it to the Atomic for the whole way. How long will she run topped off?

|KeelHaulin||Look @ the N-41 manual at the same website; or the N-30 if there is one; many of the descriptions are similar if not identical for the N-28. Since the Sailnet e-mail list has been shut down everyone who talks about Newport/Neptune/Gulf is in disarray right now so be patient while we work out where/how we will re-form our e-mail group. I'll send you a message and/or post here when we have decided the best way to proceed...|

Just bought a 77 Newport 28, looking for Manual
I agreed to purchase a Newport 28 tomorrow and we are very excited!
I would love to see a manual. Does anyone have a pdf of one. I tried to print the pages on Newport, Neptune, Gulf sailboats built by Capital Yachts but for some reason, my printer couldn't print readible versions.
Here are phots I am going to be cleaning and doing general maintenance all week.
MANY MANY questions to follow, many of them stupid
