Deck to Hull Joint

I'm going to check out a Eastward Ho 31' this weekend, and although the condition of the boat seems to be good, I'm a bit worried about the deck to hull connection. Apparently the joint on this boat is made with adhesive only, no mechanical fasteners are used. The marine survey did not note any problem with this joint. Should this method of construction be of concern?
