Sabre 34 Mk 1 Cored Hulls

Does anyone know about the construction of the Sabre 34 MK1's with cored hulls. Was it the entire hull or just above the water line etc?

From Sailing Magazine:

Construction
The early Sabre 34s were built with solid fiberglass hulls with balsa-cored decks. In 1978 the 34 was modified and produced with a balsa-cored hull as well. Sabres have held their values well, one of the surest signs of good original construction.

I did find this concern fiberglass construction dated 23 Feb 78 if anyone else cares to see it, but still no details on the balsa cored areas yet
