Re: Bulkhead Replacement-Advice Needed

RichH, thanks for all the input and ideas. Fortunately for me, I was able to get the old bulkhead out virtually intact. Only a small section (that which was tabbed to the hull) came out separately but I was able to fit the pieces together for a template. After cutting the new bulkhead, all I could think about was your statement..."You're NOT going to get a new one-piece bulkhead into a P26 or other similar Pearson bulkhead into the flange configuration." I tried fitting the one piece into place and began to think you were right. Then I had a thought...what if I remove the forward bilge cover? Bingo! The new bulkhead slipped right into place. Here it is.


As for the repair of the compression posts, I decided to make brand new ones out of white oak. They are done, stained and varnished. I also peeled off the old veneer from the header beam and re-veneered with oak. It also is stained and varnished. I'm looking forward to getting things back together. I'll post pics when done.

I have - for similar structrual fiberglass work. The Fein Multimaster is (as others have said) an awesome tool! They are expensive, but the cost amounts to only a few hours equivalent of boatyard labor $$. The cutter blade options are many, and you are sure to find the right blade for your job. Oh, and I would stick with a genuine Fein, with the quick - change blade option. The knock-off tools are just not the same.

No connection to Fein here - just a VERY satisfied customer!
Good luck with your project!

Re: Bulkhead Replacement-Advice Needed

I'm nearly done with the bulkhead project. Finished the install and painting yesterday. Just a few screws in the starboard bulkhead and re-mounting the chainplates will do it. I'll put some stain on the little button bungs that hide the screws on the posts and header. I also removed the teak trim along the cubby holes along the sides. They are sanded, stained and have one coat of varnish. Two more coats and back in the boat.

Re: Bulkhead Replacement-Advice Needed

How did you bond the bulkheads into place? Sorry if I missed that earlier...
