Re the video above, click the "Watch this video on YouTube" and it plays. Reviewing it I see it was injection moulding which was introduced subsequent to this ST42 build in 2004. The other steps, incl vacuum bagging, should apply to this hull, which appears to have been built in France.
Surprising,our 1981 IG has foam cell cored decks, it`s not the only one of its vintage though some still had the traditional teak offcut sandwich core.
The David Pascoe article is scary but on point. Most worrying is that survey will likely not reveal a defect.
