How does one reinforce bulkheads?

In looking at the bulkheads on my hunter 25, it appears they are fiberglass mostly, joined to the hull skin up to the waterline, then not joined above the waterline. The bulkhead under the mast seems to be flimsy plywood, not well tabbed to the hull either. I thought this would be the most important bulkhead but it seems much weaker than the others.

I have read of people reinforcing their bulkheads, how is this done on a production boat like mine?
