I've seen more than one Cruisers with plastic throughulls sealed with silicone and many with moisture problems in their balsa cored bottoms.

The photo below is a Cruisers throughull that fell out of the boat and exposed the balsa core. The upside of this incident was that the boat wasn't under water long enough to rot the core

Also pay close attention to all throughulls very near the water line .... they are not fitted with seacocks. Stoopid, stoopid, stoopid.

It is critical these boats be out of the water for 48hrs before moisture metering
