A quick story from the owner about MIRACLE"s overhaul

A quick story by the owner about MIRACLE's overhaul... This is the short version of the overhaul because the long version would cover many pages. Basically, she was abandoned in a Boatyard for about two years and left uncovered after being towed in with a seized engine. After hauling it to a friend’s house, we spent about 2 and one half years rebuilding her which included cropping out any and all bad wood and replacing with new ¾ inch marine plywood, removing all fiberglass and replacing with… Continue

1957 40 Newporter Hull #37 MIRACLE "For Sale"

Are you ready to live aboard and cruise anyway? The Newporter 40 is a very strong and stable pilothouse cruising sailboat. It was designed for blue water or coastal cruising built on the U.S. west coast by C.E. Ackerman in Long Beach California. Ackerman designed the first Newporter as his own boat.

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:


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.


Clyde's email: 

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.
