Newport 30 hull construction?

Were the Newport 30s built with solid hulls or cored?

My Newport 30 III (1985) has a solid fiberglass hull with a balsa core on the cabin top to keep the weight down.

Yes; from everything read on the Newport mail list there is no balsa in the hull of the N30, N33, N41.

Great, that tells me what I want to know - my weeping thruhulls probably didn't cause any problem with the core, since there isn't one!

I have a 1983 Newport 27-S II. Anybody know whether this is solid fiberglass too, or does it have a core? I'd like to install an Eagle Seacharter 640c Sonar/GPS and Shoot-Thu-Hull if I have a solid hull.

On that subject, anybody know if there's any reason why I couldn't just cut the RCA plug off the end of the thru-hull transducer cable I have, and splice it to the cable that comes with the Eagle unit? The transducer is a 200Khz, which is one of the Freq. of the Seacharter (the other being 50khz, so I won't be able to use that).
