Paulk is correct, of course - I meant to say "observations", not deficiencies.
They have a detail dwg, showing a "Screwed" hull-deck joint.
The Deck is bedded /w Sikaflex then Screwed to hull flange. Then Toe-rail is then screwed thru'' both, covering first screw. Like Paulk I view this as a major deficiency, and a tell-tale of overall design/build quality. Quality is always an issue, but MUCH more so with a "Cored" hull. Failing persuasive evidence otherwise,I''d pass.
Regards,
Gord
