I don't remember writing that but yes I was likely mistaken, Very likely a balsa cored deck. I bought one new in 76 and sailed her for 5 years. Good times.

I still recommend them, it is very easy with a moisture meter to determine to what extent the coring is wet. Not a lot of penetrations on those decks but chain plate area would be subject. The hulls were definitely solid and very well constructed.
