Question Re: Full Keel

any cruising boat that has hull that is laid up glass WITHOUT a core material like balsa core or similar is a real safe start in a search .many early hulls before 1973 were made of different glass than those later.early were polyester &much harder & stronger ....also most polyester hulls do not get the pox...better known as blisters...almost any hull by c&c,hughes_canada..hinterholler,belleville marine made before 1973 should be considered.manufacturers changed because of cost but mostly because of molds catching fire..very flamable materiels before they harden...most people are not aware of these changes...but smart buyer s in the know will take this into consideration..
