I have a 26 yr-old balsa cored deck and that made me nervous, I have seen many boats with deck soft spots, until we drilled 2 inch cores and found it sound during the renovation of the teak.

I would never buy a cored hull...just too much potential for problems...The following article details them.

Cored Hull Bottoms

Good luck Phil
