Hull Construction

In search of the perfect boat...I've read pros and cons of various hulls but am confused when I see a hull advertised as "vacuum bagged, oven cured epoxy hull, variable draft, high lift low cg bulbed lead keel". The confusing part is the "vacuum bagged, oven cured epoxy hull" -- what is this? Is it a core that over time could possibly absorb water if the vacuum bags crack/rip?

The same goes for the deck "vacuum bagged, infused vinylester composite" -- is this also a water absorbant material that has been bagged?

Any inputs would be appreciated.

Bernie
