That's interesting because Discovery was known for their foam cored hulls.

Re: Solid fiberglass decks.

yes mine as well
The foam cored hull looks more like a regular fiberglass hull with insulation foam sprayed on then smoothed and glassed over to protect it. Just not glassed over under the decks. The same foam is rough above the waterline and sanded smooth under the decks. It is sanded and glassed over below the waterline.
