Tartan 4700 Hull/deck joint.

I recently looked at a Tartan 4700. For their hull to deck joints Tartan uses an aluminum plate that is bonded to both the hull and deck fiberglass flanges. They then bolt right trough the flanges and the aluminum plate.

The boat I looked at had the hull flange in parts separating away from the aluminum plate (only in areas without a bolt).

Apologies for the poor quality, but you can hopefully see what I mean in the middle of the attached picture.

Is this indicative of a serious issue? Is this common on Tartan hull/deck joints?
