The deck to hull is screwed thru first the aluminium toe rail then the deck and a flange in the hull. Next the hull is not cored, it's solid glass. I don't know what the deck is cored with, but I don't have any soft spots after 23 years. Original cost was about $89,000 stripped. I have a Perkins 50 that will push it at 8 knts on a moderate sea. It has good engine access in comparison to a lot of other boats. Lastly I have repaired blisters but they were very shallow and easy to fix.
