The type of damage you are asking about only occurs in severely damaged and 
 neglected hulls. I believe the transom is plywood cored. Check the things 
you  are asking about, but none of them are common problems. For the most 
part you  have a bullet proof boat.

Yea, I  figured that. It wouldn't make much sense for them to put it in one
end of  the boat and not the other. So I'm guessing since I haven't read
about it  anywhere, that waterlogged foam isn't a known issue.

How common is it  for the fiberglass to de-laminate on these? Or what about
the transom, are  they wood (balsa?) are they know to rot? Just wondering
what to look for  when I get it home before I start dumping $$$$$$ into  it.

I'm in Schuylkill Haven, PA. Prolly a  little over about an hour and a half
from carlisle. I love the water, but  it will be nice to finally stay dry,
at least I hope, prolly can't flip  this one back over like the sunfish :-).

The two areas where the foam is located is  nowhere near the wooden floor or
its supports. The area under the V berth  has foam as well as under the
cockpit  floor.
