I think if you read the conclusion of your linked article it pretty much mirrors Jeff comments, though Jeff went a little further in depth.

I think the lifespan of FG hulls depends on many factors as mentioned in Jeffs post; I know of several SV that are sound at 30,40,45 yrs old, I know of several newer SV that has had some serious structural failures, one was a hot topic here on SN.
