Does anyone else see a problem here?
I'd snicker audibly if there were any of these on board:
* Cored panels
* Carbon fiber anything
* High modulus lines
* High modulus sail fabric
* Mattresses lacking inner springs
But perhaps my priorities are misplaced.

I've had both laminate and gelcoat. My PDQ has gelcoat over a cored panel, which seems smart. Both did fine in the long run. Heck, they last through decades of daily home use, generally going out of style before wearing out.
