Hello bsamx56, Welcome to YachtForums. Since you're asking about the Post 40, I assume you're talking about a wood boat. Take a good look at the fuel tank, which should be under the aft deck, and the ribs at the turn of the bilge. Examine the cabin side for rot below the aft end of the salon window track. In that age wood boat, fastenings should also be suspect. Post built a nice boat in that era. They provide a nice ride and the cedar plank hull rarely had big problems except as noted.

The next generation 42's of fiberglass were good boats too. Early FG models had a wood deck and house, then went to all FG the following year.

Thank you for your insight. Did you ever have a look at the recently for sale 40ft Post in Ft Lauderdale ? Any comments on her? I understand her fuel tanks were recently replaced.

Thanks
Rick

Hi Rick, I'm not familiar with that particular boat in Ft Lauderdale. The only 40 Post that I see currently for sale on YachtWorld is located in Merritt Island, Fl.
