1985 Mac 25 deck coring

Post by Seadoc » Tue Jan 29, 2019 10:48 pm

I'm involved in the restoration of an '85 Mac 25. Does anyone on this forum know if this year/model has any deck coring? If so in what areas of the deck?
Thanks.

On my Venture 25 (Older version of the same boat) I remember that most of the deck was solid, and I seem to remember some plywood being laminated in the area around the mast tabernacle. At my age memory is a dangerous thing, but I am sure there was nothing on the deck comparable to todays coring, such as Balsa or Foam.
