Sectionable is interesting. The logical place to cut would be at the normal bulkhead positions, so you put in two bulkheads at each position, with just enough room between them for the saw. The bulkheads should be fully filleted before you cut, otherwise the sheer clamps will straighten out and the hull wont be fair. The sheer clamps are where I would add some bracing, rather than on the centerline. Ideally the deck would be on before cutting, but that might not suit your building facility.
