Glassing into the skin is problematic if the skin itself is weak I suppose? Shall I go back to research steel boats? (I did/doing, but unhappy with their continuous need for anti-corrosion service) Also very difficult to find the right design in steel, because of the metal boat market is microscopic compared to FG...
I wouldn't worry about it overly much. Have it inspected and reinforce with extra glassing if necessary. Otherwise the boat is bulletproof.
