I guess you don't really need a watertight collision bulkhead, since your boat is steel.
Oh, no, I do, but if the bulkhead is watertight to within two feet of the deck, I don't lose a lot. A regular doggable hatch is likely fine for that, as tearing up a serious hole in the first seven feet of the boat would probably mean abandoning ship anyway, just in a more orderly fashion or with the option of "sitting tight".
The boat has two other half-height bulkheads either end of the engine bay.
