No your not missing any boats except those with solid fiberglass
decks - I'm not aware of any and I think it would be a rare find. There are very few older boats without some deck core
moisture. The drilling holes method is appropriate for moisture in the core
and minor delamination
. Major delamination
is usually fixed the way you did it. Small squares of plywood
or balsa used instead of full pieces make it easier to fill with epoxy
and take the shape of the deck
camber without having to screw from underneath or place real heavy weights on top while curing.
Good luck with your decision.
