Re: Questions about bulkhead replacement
I would try to push the deck up and use the original shape. sounds like the hull and deck have warped from the bulkheads being left out for to long. fiber glass will take on a new shape if you apply pressure an wait long enough. it will also be affected by heat in the summer sun. the shape will be a lot easier to push back if you heat up the glass while you are installing the bulkheads. heat the inside with a electric heater and place black plastic on the deck and let the sun heat the deck.
