Does the flat spot correspond to some furniture or fitting in the galley area? If so, then the flat spot is probably going to be a point of failure for the laminate, as it will cause a hard spot or edge in the laminate, and be much more prone to fatigue there. Also, have you looked at sisterships to the one you are looking at? If so, did they have a flat spot in the same location? If they didn't then it is more likely a problem...if all of them have a flat spot there, it may have been a defect in the mold the boat was built using.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
