Fullcanopy-

That just means the areas the through-hulls were in were solid glass. There may be parts of the hull that are cored. It is very common on a cored hull to leave a solid laminate strip running down the center of the boat for the keel and through hulls.

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.
