A question that I've had for a while: the Taiwan Trawlers (CHB's and kin) seem to have lots of trouble with their deck coring getting squishy because of the fasteners for the teak decking allowing water to get in.
But other boats (I'm thinking of the Grand Banks, in particular) don't seem to have the same issues.
Anyone know why? Solid decks? Properly prepared holes in the deck? Bettter sealing of the deck boards???
