    The OP's boat is a solid bottom, any wet core areas would be from the waterline up. A lot of builders were using balsa back then before foam coring. Most are now using resin infusion or vacuum bagging methods when coring, even on cored bottoms which now they claim is ok. All it takes is a unsealed fastener that penetrates the fiberglass coring, especially balsa and plywood. Best to monitor where something is fastened to the cored fiberglass with screws and bolts for moisture. Glassed wood stingers and bulkheads in the bilge are often neglected.
