Pascoe’s discussion of cored costruction

Contemplating purchase. Which boats less than 200,000 do not use cored construction?

Seeing as cored construction is expensive and you are looking at relatively cheap boats I would say most of them

Obviously you have no idea what cored construction is. The practice of sandwiching balsa between the external fiberglass and the internal fiberglass reduced weight and made the construction cheaper.

Oh boy, lots to debate here....

Cored construction can be different things and in both high and low end boats.

Start slinging mud this early and you may wind up in a landslide of knowledge that buries your last post.

Maybe a little abrupt in that response. Yes, I am dealing with cheaper 1980 and 1990 vessels which from what I can see most used balsa or some other core material.

Nah, I have no idea.
Only been building foam, balsa and strip planked composite boats most of my life.

Do you mean cored hull versus cored deck/house?

Most boats do not have cored hulls. If you are interested in a boat call the broker and ask if that specific boat has a cored hull. And maybe be a bit more circumspect when you disagree with someone here. BTW, welcome aboard.

Most boats of that age are going to have wood in them, the question is where, how it was encapsulated, what kind . The question is a bit too broad.

Plus Pascoe as a reference is too politically loaded, your not likely to get a useful response.

Lots of knowledge here, you might want to ask a question more likely to get the response you want.

Hulls you need to go mfg by mfg, everything else is a sliding scale. Pretty unusual to not get some rot somewhere, you just want to keep it in the annoying category, not in the level where the whole boat is not economical to maintain.

OP, you may benefit from searching recent threads which cover coring, incl the late David Pascoe`s views. Asking for an exhaustive list of cored sub 200K boats while being offensive,is a big ask. I believe one big Euro builder is still making them.

This is the recent string about cored hulls. As stated above Pascoe's views are discussed.

Cored Hulls

By the way I did contact the technical director of ABYC about the dangers of hull damage to cored (and solid) hulls from hydraulic pad lift (versus keel lift) yard trailers and they invited me to contribute to their upcoming rewrite of material in this area. For those with an interest, the first photo below is a pad lift only trailer (no keel support). The second is a keel lift trailer (note the cross beams). The keel lift trailer does have hydraulic side stabilizing arms...but they do not support the weight of the boat. In my view pad lift trailers are a menace...particularly for most cored hull boats.

According to Pascoe , just about every boat should have blown up, sunk, fell apart, rotted away, and left you adrift . Pure entertainment.

I have a Bertram, so Pascoe says I'm good, LOL.

(One of the boats he almost likes.)

I remember when he (Pascoe) stated I was a guinea pig for buying Yanmar diesels, 20 years and 3500 hours and very happen with the decision... But everyone has an opinion, that's what makes the world go around...
