Is the 1987 Pearson 39-2's hull balsa cored

I am trying to find out if the earlier Pearson 39-2's were made with balsa cores below the waterline. I would think that the later models made till 1991 might have been made that way but I am surprised that the earlier ones were made this way - Also if they are Balsa cored below the waterline has anyone heard of osmosis issues with this Pearson. I am interested in buying one but my walk away if the hull below waterline is balsa cored - I presently have a P365 and had a P30 both with bullet proof fiberglass hull.
Thanks
