The time has come!

After owning Western Way for the past 20 years the time has come for us to move to the "Dark Side".   We sold our Newporter hull # 71 and have purchased a motor boat.   They say the happiest times for a boat owner are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.  For us every day we sailed was happy.   Selling it was not easy and for everything we put into it, It was a sad time.  However as well designed and constructed as the Newporter is the upkeep  for a 57 year old wooden boat would…See More

Original Newporter winches

I have the two Geno winches,  The main sheet winch and the main halyard winch that I replaced  on Western Way.  I have changed the main halyard so I can raise the sail and reef from the cockpit.  Lines lead to the top of the pilot house.  I replaced the Geno winches with self tailing ones.   If anyone wants the old winches - give me a call or email me and we can work out something.  I will donate them if you pay for shipping and plan to use them on a Newporter.  Phone 207 469-3749 or…

Just re enrolled in this site.

I have been on the computer getting together photos for the broker.  Sadly after 20 years - 5 in rebuild and 15 sailing and constantly upgrading I am serious about selling Western Way.  She is in excellent shape and has been a fantastic cruising platform for my wife and I but we are getting to the age where I need to downsize.   I do plan to launch this May for the last season unless she sells.  We are going over to the dark side and I plan to get a trawler type yacht probably about 30 feet…

THE ROSTER

Muf, our Keeper of the Roster, has updated it.  But he still needs information on boats out there that he doesn't have, like new owners, old owners, where any of the boats are.  We don't post the roster on the web site, it is only sent to owners.  Please send him anything you might have, or call him at:

Captain Clyde's Newporter  sites:

newporters.blogspot.com

and  

newporter.ning.com

The Ning site has been given a reprieve.   I have  transferred my Ning site to the blogspot site and will leave it there. I am keeping my Ning site open as a home for my photos and drawings.

Many of my photos there do not relate to Newporters, but a search through my collection may prove useful for your studies.

My drawings are not accurate in many respects as a result of the PAINT program used to draw them, There is no accurate scale and at best they are only useful to indicate some specific detail.  Some are inaccurate because of my poor memory.  Use them to help you think, not as a detailed presentation of the subject matter.

If any of you want to start a web site I suggest you remember what has happened to both my Ning site and this site (which is a Ning site) and remember that my Blogspot site is free and Blogspot's owner (Google) has promised to keep it that way.

Put 'Newporter' on Subject Line.  Email is the best way to contact me.  I do not regularly look at this site or its messaging system.  Email will get to me post-haste.
