What a shame....
They film themselves trespassing on private property, then post it to YouTube...
Three young men with a lack of intelligence and limited vocabulary.
The future does look depressing.
Th OPs shame has been recorded however.
It is a SHAME to see a once great boat plant turn into a ghost town in a short time.
The many buildings still offer a story of how Post built their boats.
A proud product that will never be built again.
My wife and I had toured that factory twice, many years ago. The first time we stopped to see where our boat was built by ourselves, unannounced, and we were treated to a tour of the factory as if we were buying a new one.
The second time was later with a group of Post owners from a rendezvous.
Sad to see it now.
It always impressed me that they could build such a boat at the head of a drainage ditch !
I think your commenting on the canal or creek behind the plant and that house?
I assume (hope) it drained to open water.
I was there when the dumpsters were outside, my wife had to hold me back from going over the fence. I can not imagine what got thrown out.
Where the factory is/was had very little water where the boats got launched. I'm thinking they had to wait for high tides to get boats started going down the Egg Harbor River.
That's true. High tide and trim the weeds on either side of the creek.
As I recall there were sticks to show where the deep water was.
It was pretty cool.
I would have felt the same.
I'd like to have the old Post Yachts sign too.
Post kids are cool.
Long live the Post fans!!
I'd have loved to go through the boxes of paper work in the office. I thought Worton Creek got all the molds....I guess I was wrong.
Me too on both counts.
Not Condoning the trespassing by the guys who made this video, but I believe this is some new " trend" called urban exploration where people explore and film abandoned places (hopefully not vandalizing the place or stealing anything). I will admit that it is quite fascinating, yet sad at the same time to see these old abandoned places.
wonder what mold that is?
Guessing the Original 42?
My boat's Mama?
I feel very fortunate to have toured the factory twice and see the excellent work that company did. I learned alot from them.
I did too, and learned a lot. Went to the factory several times. Saw hull number 1 of the 50 before the newer building was built. Stood in hull 2 and 3 of the 50 when it went into production. Saw the first 44 built before they introduced it. Last time was the trip from Wildwood, had a great time meeting Post owners and keeping in touch.
Not exactly new... started in the 70s in San Francisco and then gained popularity in the 90s.
