Bulkhead replacement, how -to

Any one pulled a bulkhead on an 22 shoal. I would like to know any points that may help.

Tom.. assuming the old BH is intact enough you could use it as the pattern for the new one? Or, make a template from it out of 1/4" plywood and use the template with a pattern bit in a router to make a new one? On removing the old one maybe it's a good idea to make sure the BH is not under stress, like the mast and rigging being under tension. Possibly you would need to support the cabin top while the BH is out. I've a 30 Oday don't even want to think what it would entail in my boat!

Actually making the pattern is the easy part. The hard part is cutting out the old bulkhead and then grinding off any tabbing etc. until it is smooth and then grinding any paint etc off the hull about 12 inches out so that you can glass the new bulkhead in. I am not familair with your boat but replaced a bulkhead on mine last year.
To make a pattern for the new bulkhead I got a large piece of cardboard from an appliance packing box and slowing cut it to fit. Not really very difficult.

Have Fun
