As to C&C hull being cored, most are not, just topside s are and many have reinforced areas of fiberglass thre equipment bedded like winches etc. my hull is not cored.

Are CB's, when taken care of, just another "part"?
@Chef2sail:
I'm open to CBs for the reasons you mention and my question above stands to all CB'ers.
I was on a friends Pearson 34 just the other day and he explained, and it was right there in front of my eyes, on the port side of the cockpit, on the vertical "wall" under the seating area (like where some engine controls are), there was a cleat and no kidding, regular line, probably 7/16's, that came up from a slot and was simply cleated off. I notice some of the other CB boats had winch-like setups in various locations, cockpit, table in cabin, etc.
