    Here is an actual response from Post from back in the day. Mine is a 91 but I believe they stayed with this program for a number of years after that.

    Stained Pilot Houses, Doors & Drawers are McCloskey's Tungseal, Walnut Penetrating Wood Stain or Dupont Barnwood Stain ##1045C.

    Exterior - - - Bridge Parts & Moulding around shelter are Teak finished with Dolfinite#110 Spar Varnish.

    Teak treated with Tip-Top Teak (or equal) Mfg. by Tripple T. Enterprises, Inc., Palm Gardens Fla.

    Engine room - - Interlux #289 Miami Tan & 50% Z-Spar #105

    Boot Stripe - - Awl Grip Colors to Suit from chart

    Teak Interiors are sealed with Interlux sanding Sealer #X9297 then finished with #60 Interlux Rubbed Varnish

    Thanks Davidoc. My interior is a high gloss finish with a very hard surface. I suspect it is not a varnish....

    Hopefully someone has a Post manual that may specify. Post and Viking used many similar things back then. I wouldn't be surprised if it matches Viking, if you can track it down that way.

    I have all the manuals, unfortunately I can't find any spec on it. I may just have the marina's refinisher stop by and give me his opinion....

    I think you will find that most interiors in modern day boats are a 2 part urethane system that's sprayed on. There are a number of commercial brands they use but hard to buy as an individual.

    Heres an example of the type of product I am referring to for interior finish that the builders use.

    DuPont™ 18320S™ & 18321S™

    ,
    I bought my 1998 baby when it was a little over 2 years old out of CT . My family has had a great ride with this vessel, but after a while you can't help but develop a nick or two here and there. I'd like to fair those away?

    This might be helpful.

    below was cut and pasted from a 1988 46' Post owners book:
    The book appears as though some of the info is for older 43 and 46 Posts's.
    The book does not reference the 50 Post. I am not sure when the 50 started production.

    FROM BOOK:

    " Paint 43' and 46' "

    Entire Exterior of boat is Interlux Exterior Gloss White #87, Mixed W/Ivory Interlux#224 (approx 8 oz/Gal.) to match Gelcoat.

    Inside Colors are tinted using the Z-spar Gloss#100. Wood finished with Interlux#60 Rubbed effect Varnish.

    Stained Pilot Houses, Doors & Drawers are McCloskey's Tungseal, Walnut Penetrating Wood Stain or Dupont Barnwood Stain ##1045C.

    Exterior - - - Bridge Parts & Moulding around shelter are Teak finished with Dolfinite#110 Spar Varnish.

    Teak treated with Tip-Top Teak (or equal) Mfg. by Tripple T. Enterprises, Inc., Palm Gardens Fla.

    Thx RT. Production of the 50 started in 1989. Definitely a high gloss finish. And I'm almost certain it's a 2 part something or other. Too hard to be varnish
