When fitting and tabbing a new bulkhead, or partial bulkhead should the bulkhead be flush against the hull and then tabbed in, or should a small gap be left all the way round (but still tabbed in) so that the hull can't 'work' around the stiff spot a bulkhead would create?
The practical part behind this question is, i have taken down the moulded (or am attempting to!) in headlining in my boat and was suprised to find the main bulkhead not tabbed onto the deckhead, instead the moulded lining continues over the top of the bulkhead and continues through the forecabin. I was going to cut it off flush, fill the gap between the bulkhead and the deckhead with thickened epoxy and then tap over it, or would this not be acceptable?
Any help much appreciated thanks!
