The others are right that you could skip the bulkheads altogether and opt for floation bags.
I've built several 14s and I do install bulkheads. Cheaper than good float bags and they do make the decks stronger. I never put hatches on a 14. Instead, I move the rear bulkhead aft 4" for storage behind the seat, and install a 1" by 4mm stiffener clamp-to-clamp under the aft coaming to carry the load.
