If the mold was in disrepair the boat could have much bigger problems than just a rough finnish. The whole thing could be out of true. LIke twisted or wider on one side than the other(measure fom the center of the keel out.)
It would worry me. but I'm a skeptic. and 12,000 seems like a lot for a 1972 desighn that is half finnished.

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.
