Looking for new or still functioning Newport newsgroups/forums/etc.

Hello, it seems to me that the easily found / commonly recommended Newport specialty websites are dead, does anyone here know of an active Newport or Newport 30 site where one can communicate with other owners in a forum or BBS or whatever sort of way to get answers, share info & experiences etc? If no specialty sites are known to you how about other boating site's sub-forums like this one we are on here?

Examples of dead sites that were often recommended in the past include the Newport 30 association at Home of the Newport30 Association nothing much in the last decade and a half +, Yahoo group destroyed by Yahoo with all the other groups and the group website at http://boatnut.4t.com no longer in existence / IP not find-able and the Newport, Neptune, Gulf sailboat website at Newport, Neptune, Gulf sailboats built by Capital Yachts both having little or no activity as well as apparently never having had a forum / message board type place to interact with other owners.
Thank you.

Re: Looking for new or still functioning Newport newsgroups/forums/etc.

Between here and the other known forums, like sbo, the only other place that I know off-hand is the "Newport Sailboat Owners and other Capital Yachts" Facebook group:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/860390570690157/

I know not everyone is into the Facebook scene - the main reason I am is because a lot of forum groups had migrated to the facebook group scene, leaving little choice but to follow if I wanted to keep up. It's still not the most active, but it's more active than the forums here and on SBO are.
