What do you figure the weight savings is in this boat vs solid glass?
Plus the hull must be quieter too?
Any BIG BIG downside to a cored hull ??
So the primary advantages of coring is strength/stiffness and sound attenuation?
My bet is that this boat was cored (looks like with foam) to dampen sound and vibration, since it's primary function was harpooning. The first decade or so of her life I don't think the tower and stand were ever removed though I could very well be wrong about that.
I think she was built in the late 80's too, I'm surprised that the Young Brothers were coring with foam at that time. I though foam came along later.
