No core, and the gash is actually on the bottom more than the side. The interior picture is inside one of the bench compartments in the cabin.

A little, meaning I've put down glass and mixed resin once.

I've never been afraid to try something new, and hey, since I got the hull for free whats the worse I could do, make it not seaworthy?

Thanks for the adivce. Both of you.
