Core question

Came up on the survey. Are the 32's cored below the waterline. This is a 2001 boat if that helps
Thank you
Tim

Should be solid below the waterline.
There were some variations in the hulls but I think this was universal.

My 97' is solid. You should be able to see the transition in thickness easily enough, and you can hear it tapping.
