Foredecks

What would the thickness of the foredeck construction / core material be on a modern GRP cruiser? Volume production. Not high end such as Moody,Oyster or Disco. More along the lines of BAV,D,JE,BEN etc. Popular production cruiser type produced within last three years? Length 48 to 55 ft.

Would the thickness of the foredeck around the foredeck hatches be as deep as the deck hatches themselves? For instance, if the hatch casings are 7cm cm would the deck be the same depth all across the frontal area of the forward deck?

I appreciate the thickness of the deck will change and become thinner in other parts of the boat such as side wall's etc. But I had not really appreciated how thick the core could be. Given the injection moulding process of the deck with no separate interior liner I am thinking it must be quite deep?

Re: Foredecks

Seems odd to start a second and third thread on this same subject - was it an accident?
