recoring decks

I have a 1965 Bermuda that needs a complete overhaul and I'm starting with my decks to ease the "Cheoy Leaky" bit. She has 1/8" glass top and bottom and a half inch of what used to be some sort of wood, probably balsa?? I do not want to recore with wood, but I do want to add more weight to the bow for structural and overall weight balance purposes. I'm looking for any and all suggestions on materials. I'm planning on cutting up the top layer of glass and completely replacing it (the teak is long gone ) Please! Comments, suggestions, I need all the input I can get before making my decision on what to do. Thanks!
