Re: Endurance 35 information.
Endurances were built in Fiberglass by the DeKleer brothers (of Fraser fame) near Vancouver. Many were sold as kits (hull/deck and/or hull only)
Not a particularly inspired design and if this is a homebuilt you really need to be 'eyes wide open' all the time. Glass-over-wood can work quite well (there are thousands of homebuilt Thunderbirds out there) but there's always a possibilities of delamination and separation.
