a beautiful boat should sail forever.

Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone had some information on a newporter currently located in asacortes Washington. Hull #35 named Red's Rogue. He has it posted as free to a good home and I'd like to see it saved, either by me or someone else. in the winter 2016 issue is where I found the listing.

Talked with the original owners son about the boat. Unfortunately, I cannot give it the love or attention it deserves. Hopefully he comes by someone who has the ability to restore that boat. Thanks for the advise.

Hi David,

       Well, it could be heaven or it could be hell, and will no doubt be some hell before it becomes heaven.

Newporters tend to deteriorate from the topsides down, i.e. the salt water does not encourage rot, but the fresh water from leaky decks and windows that accumulates at various locations does serious damage. Newporters are relatively easy to repair, given that you have the time and money. There probably isn't any project that has not been done and documented with photos, available on this site.  There are several knowledgeable and experienced Newporter owners willing to advise, but it can be a big project. 

      Go down, or up, and take some photos. close ups of the deck, around the windows, the bilge, the mast steps, -- post them on this site and I am sure we can give you some insight.   friend bob

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.
