Re: Pearson 26 bulkhead delamination

That looks to be the forward cabin bulkhead. If the bulkhead were solid, you can just cut out the old galss and re-do. If the bulkhead is rotted, as it sounds that is, that's the reason the boat is free, as the bulkhead needs to be replaced and it is a big job.

Skip the GitRot. You can chose to ignore it, or hack at it, just remember, until it is replaced, the boat will continue to have no value...if like most owners you cant resist the "fix this, fix that...make it better.." attitude toward the vessel you come to love, you may find you end up putting a lot of time and money in her...which is all down the drain until that bulkhead has been replaced.
