    So, I purchased a 1980 Post 42 last fall. Ran great from Amesbury to Boston last week. Now I am just doing maintenance items and small projects. Very happy with the boat. We are going to have a new enclosure made (Didn't come with one). What are your thoughts on removing the small wind screen? Keep it or not....

    My boat, made 30 years later, has one. It is functional.

    I have one on my 46 and like it. It was broken during hurricane Michael and I replaced it. Not just for the looks but it does turn some water when you're running in a heavy head sea. These aren't dry boats.

    If you do remove it, don't chuck it.

    Someone might need one.

    I don't know if this is typical but I had a hard time finding single pieces of smoked lexan in that length & thickness. ( I forget the length now ) I think I bought either a 10 or 12 foot X 5 ft sheet so as to not have two pieces.

    Obviously, I kept mine too.

    I had to buy a 5x10 sheet. It's hard to find and very expensive.

    No screen on my 76. Makes a huge difference in the overall look, IMO. Most casual observers guess she’s 90s vintage at the oldest. The bridge windscreen is one of the only lines of the Post I never liked and I love not having it on mine.

    I agree with Outpost. Love the look without it on my 1989 43'

    I agree, remove it. It brings the eisenglass straight down without the bump-out forward, where it goes around screen. A more sheer modern look.
