Re: Rot in hull/deck joint - thoughts on necessity of reinforcement?

why does the hull /deck joint have fiberglass over it? a true cold molded hull does not use fiberglass. the wood is impregnated with epoxy and does not rot. if there is fiberglass over the cold molding it may be the reason there is water in the shear strip. is the boat cold molded or cedar planked covered with fiberglass?
