1987 pearson 39-2 cored below waterline?

I find conflicting reports about this boat. Balsa coring is at best risky above the waterline,but below? Maybe it's just me but that sounds worse than risky. So, my question is did pearson really use balsa coring below the waterline? The rest of the boat seems to be very solid.
