Yes, a little, but balsa is awfully weak, and the stand-off is where it's at. My own is probably sodden, but it would need a very big sea indeed for it to make a difference.
Most of owners are going to get it tight financially as the great depression looms, so I do what I have to, and live with what I don't.
Sometimes it's better that way, with a 31 year-old ship.
There is hardly a cored deck on the planet that has not got water in it, mine probably more than most.
