You can make a cored bulkhead, and I've seen it done on some very expensive boats, like Gui's Giulietta...but it is rather unusual.
Are the bulkheads your making up structural in nature? What kind of boat is it??
Some of the honeycomb materials aren't really good as core materials, since they really don't have the tensile strength or the compressive strength needed. They also generally require the panels made with them to be vacuum infused, which is a more complicated and difficult technique of laying up panels.

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.
