Newport 30 1978

was wondering if anyone has information on getting a replacement guard that goes before the rudder.
mine was broken off in a storm. i think is was made out of fiberglass.

Tim, can't help with specific question, but not sure if you're aware of two other Newport resources out there:

One is a Facebook group: (it's private so you have to ask to join and be approved), other is a Yahoo Group: (also have to apply to join)

They're both good resources with good helpful people, might check there.

Re: Newport 30 1978

Not clear what you'r'e referring too by 'guard'. Drawings on Sailboatdata show a spade rudder with no skeg of any kind. Pictures?
