Re: Bulkhead #1 on wr 18

Is there a reason this isn't just a deck beam? Maybe I'm missing something about the hull shape in that region but couldn't you just put in a deck beam of the same width and have at it with that?
Of course, I put my bulkheads in after I filleted my hull, so my perspective may be skewed.
As for the amount of space available, yes it's certainly huge but look how much more you've completely eliminated as useful. The WR18 is indeed a very large boat but if you're planning, say a month long excursion, space becomes a premium, and if you're not, the extra space isn't a hindrance.
