1983 Newport 27S-II Hull construction and Sonar Transducer Installation

I've asked this over in the Newport 30 Hull thread, but I'll ask it here too, to get a little more visibility....

Anybody know how Newport's/Capital's hull construction varied with year and model? I have an 83 Newport 27S-II that I'd like to install an Eagle Seacharter 640C Sonar/GPS in, and do the easy Shoot-thru-Hull transducer installation, IF I have a solid hull......but if it's cored, I am not going to cut through the balsa from the inside until I get to the outer hull....no thanks.

Jeff
