You might want to hear what a number of owners have to say about the N-30...

I googled your boat because I had never heard of it. The first thing that came up was a video of you and the boat on youtube (nice lime green camel toe!). Anytime you need a crew, let me know. I'm in Wilmington, just down the coast a bit. I'll bring the beer!

I read up they lack longitudinal stringers aft of the keel and if on the hard you must make sure no stands are placed there...

this applies to many boats btw...

No, i wouldn't take a Newport 30 off shore. Just not built for it as cited previously.

I was under the impression that Newports couldn't be stored on their keel while in storage due to the lack of structural support. I could be wrong. I see a few in special cradles suspended off the ground.

THATS IT!

sorry

for the not exact accuracy but I followed up on that story while it was happening and they say a lot of them suffered from bad layup aft of the keel contributing to a very flexy and wobbly rear end if you will

that and pay attention to the galvanised bolts...if there is a big gap then its possible to have severely rusted bolts

I clearly remeber though seing the hull with no keel laid up on the beach front

thanks for the refresher

Re: Woud YOU take a Newport 30 offshore?

I dont like to badmouth designs...for the most part production boats with some decnet and thoghtfull mods are fine for offshore...racing is another story.

having said that when I was in san francisco there was big news when a newport 30 lost its keel out the gate I beleive, or after hitting something inside the bay, Im trying to find the article but it was published in latitude 38

they are one of a very few distinguished boats to have that happen...


just my 2 cents fwiw
