Aloha and welcome aboard!
I have a friend that used to run the Samson yard somewhere in SoCal around Newport Beach somewhere. Really knows a lot about them.
I've seen some beautifully built ferros and then I've seen some complete messes. I think it all comes down to who layed up the hull.
Good to have you here.
kind regards,
