1984 Pearson 34's - cored hull?

I am having trouble determining whether the 1984 Pearson 34 has a cored hull. I noticed some postings refer to the 34-2 having a cored hull, and one mentions the 34 would be preferred over the 34-2, but none specifically state anything definitive about the 1984 Pearson 34 as being solid, cored, etc.

Please reply if you have any information on this question that will help me better understand the Pearson hulls and years cored hulls were used. I am considering purchasing a 1984 Pearson 34 and just now learning about differences in hulls across models and years. Thank you!

You may have already seen this:

But it would appear that by '87 Pearson had joined the 'cored hull club', with indications that they had done so by '84 too with the 34. The 30, in production til '81 seems universally held to be solid layup..
