I'd be a bit surprised by that, since CE Ryder, the company that made the Eastward Ho series of boats, is pretty well known for very solid construction of the boats they built. Some modern boats are being made without mechanical fasteners... but I don't remember any older ones being made that way. Could it be that one of the previous owners re-did the hull-deck join and went with only adhesive?? What year is the boat??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
