Perhaps I missed it but why are you replacing the entire bulkhead? If you have some rot (perhaps from poorly bedded chainplates), it would seem wiser, and much easier, to cut out the damaged material and replace it with a sistered backing panel than to attempt to replace the whole business, no?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
