Re: Bulkhead radius bad?

Just installed the deck on the chesapeake 17 this weekend and had the same question before proceeding ahead blindly. Howard explained it best. Yeah there may be a slight gap but the deck curves down and is then upswept at the end. It's not correct to shoot a straight line down.

Once you install the hatches the bulkhead will be easy to access and seal if you need to. After you see what pretty lines the boat makes when you get the deck instaled you won't care about gaps in the bulheads anyhowunless you start sinking. ;-)
