32 Gulf Pilothouse

I'm considering the purchase of a 1985 Gulf 32 pilothouse. Does anyone know if Capital Yachts was using a balsa core on the hull of this boat below the waterline? Any other insights regarding this particular boat are appreciated in advance.

Re: 32 Gulf Pilothouse

The hull and deck are hand laid gel coat & fiberglass (matt & roving) The deck is reinforced with core sections and plywood.
