Thanks for the details -- all these go into my nugget! A couple last questions on the subject.

If the "vacuum bagged, oven cured epoxy hull" and "vacuum bagged, infused vinylester composite" processes are good (given the manufacture is capable of accomplishing the task), where do the cored hulls come into play?

Are there manufactures that are making these cored hulls and simply laying fiberglass over them anticipating they will only be around so long before the core starts absorbing water?

On the flip side, the non-cored options -- are these simply the traditional layed fiberglass for strength? Sorry if these seems like basic questions --- I'm still in the learning phase?
