MC1, I sent you a PM but just in case...did the factory have any objections or concerns at all, about the removal of the aft bulkhead for access to the steering cable/reel? Seaworthiness, etc.?
I've thought about doing something similar or at least a big access hatch but wasn't sure
about reducing the strength of the stern area for offshore.
Did you mean 'DGriffith' instead of MC1? I didn't have to do any bulkhead modifications on my PSC '34.
