Re: Oil pan for Universal Diesel

Newport 28's usually had a Universal 5411 (M15) which is a Kubota Z500 block, The Z500 was used in a B5100 tractor. Check the dipstick to see if it has Z500 stamped on it

Re: What's the best was to seal my stanchion bases?

I believe butyl is the way to go. The only thing you have to worry about is water getting into the deck thru the screw holes. Make sure they are chamfered and use lots of butyl.

Re: Carpet in a Sailboat?

Our Ticon 30 had carpeting glued pretty well through out the cabin when it was built. We found "Marine Carpet" at Home Depot ( US) It was near identical to the original and pretty reasonable.

Re: Foam/cushion shops in NYC/Hudson Valley

I have seen posts where it was recommended to purchase a foam mattress and cut it yourself. Take a look on line, you would have a lot of choices on firmness etc.
