Hello. My name is***** they were all fiberglass. The only wood in them is in the transom, stringers and deck wrapped in fiberglass.What you want to look for are soft spots in the floor, decks and transom. To check the transom look in the splashwell at the transom top. The transom will be cracked from transom flexing if it is soft or rotten. The other test is to stand on the cavitation plate on the engine and jump up and down. The transom should not flex. Post back with questions.Thank you......Tan
