It would help if you said what boat it was... but yes, re-tabbing a bulkhead while the boat is on the hard can be a bad idea, since most hulls will change shape slightly when in the water. This is particularly true if the bulkhead in question is a structurally important one. If you do have to do this with the boat out of the water, try and minimize the stress on the hull in the area of the bulkhead you are working on.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
