Re: Bulkhead install help
Posted by Dave Houser on Sep 28, 2007
You are doing a nice job. I had it in my head that the deck was on and you were adding bulkheads. Piecing together a template is a good method especially with the good access offered when the deck is off. Some guys add minicell foam to the stern side of the front bulkhead in lieu of installing footrests, if done it is important to glass both sides of the front bulkhead for strength. Since you have good access to both sides of the bulkhead a fillet on both sides is a good idea. I like to glass the inside of cockpit before making the fillet on the cockpit side of the bulkheads to hide the cut edge of the glass. Keep up the good work.
