By 1981, the adhesives may have been advanced enough that doing a hull-deck join with just adhesives was possible... I don't know off-hand what they would have used or whether it was good enough. I haven't seen any complaints on the CE Ryder boats, regardless of brand, regarding bad hull-deck joins, so I don't think it'll be a major issue. A good survey will tell you if the hull-deck join is leaking to any major degree. So will looking in the lockers and nooks and crannies on 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.
