Permission to come aboard !
I am new to the site as I have just recently finished a complete refurb of a 1984 46' Post. We love the boat and from the emotions displayed on this site there are a lot of others who share the same passion.
Our 46 seems to be rather unique as it has the galley down with crews bunks ,head, forward queen stateroom with head in the bow.
All gelcoat is original, we stripped all varnish and applyed six coats of Bristol Finish.Interior was revarnished,new teak and holly sole lower and carpet upper.In the galley we removed the old Princess stove and replaced with a glass cooktop and a microwave/convection oven all on new granite countertops. All new marble over all other counter tops throughout the boat with new wallpaper. New sinks and frameless shower doors with teak shower floor mats.All new electronics,led lights and recessed flat screen TV's. New thruhulls and the majority of the water/sanitation system was replaced.Both 671's had an upper rebuilt as the engines only had 2000 hours on them and a new genset.
As you might guess I am a type "A". Only two items are left on my punch list. 1) One of the forward hatches is cracked. I called Post before they closed ( sorry to see another victim of the economy) who gave us the name of an employee that has the mold for the hatches.A very nice man who would entertain making more hatches but needs a quantity of five or more to make it worthwhile.Anybody out there in need of a replacement hatch or better yet know of a place I could pick one up?
2) I read a few threads regarding transmissions.Our port gear sometimes goes into reverse a few seconds after starting the engine.Pressure in both trannys ramps right up to 200 + when started so I am at a loss for the cause. Any thoughts before I have a tech look at it?
Sorry to gloat about our project but it seems the Post is a boat with a storied past and classic lines. The work was hard but fun and seeing the progression each day in bringing her back to her former self was a just reward.
So if you are ever up in Minnesota on the St. Croix River, lookout for the only sportfisher in the Midwest, let alone with outriggers, flying a number of Walleye Flags after a successful day of fishing!
Thanks for any thoughts or ideas on my inquirys.
