just goes to show that there are indeed some ignorant,negligent or
dishonest vendors out there willing to make a quick good buck anyway
they can. Buyer beware!!

- That's exactly what I did. I don't know how thick their skins are; but If I
were in a position to order a boat build that way I'd insist on a filling of
the slots at leats with more foam.
I really don't claim or want to argue my point beyond the fact that I looked
at it in a very amateurish way; but decided I didn't trust this method; or
voids and gaps between skin sheets in a composite.
Now no matter how wrong I might be; I'm never going to be particular happy
in a boat that has this issue; so I avoid it.
