Prout 50 Sandwich

Do anyone of you know what core material it is on the fore deck sandwich construction of a Prout 50 Quasar from the 80:s?
I ask because I am going to watch one with a teak deck (???) on the fore deck and I'm quite concerned about the idea, mainly because of the leaking risk but also the performance loss.
What's your idea?
Rolf

I would think the core material is balsa, but am not sure. It's not unheard of for builders to switch core materials, depending on what is available at the time.

“The deck moulding is reinforced with balsa sandwich ...”
