Hurricane hull construction?

Can anyone tell me if Hurricane boats are all Fibreglass or if they have a wooden transom? I'm looking at a little older boat and wondered if this was a concern.

    Hurricane uses marine grade plywood in their transoms with the exception of the newer SunDeck 2690, which has composite.

    Unless the fiberglass surrounding the plywood has been compromised in a way that has the plywood waterlogged, this construction is strong and durable.  If you have concerns regarding a specific boat, then I would suggest you hire someone to do a survey on the boat.  Spending a few hundred dollars may save you thousands in near to future repairs, not to mention having peace of mind.
