Re: Liner cleaning from leak, how difficult?

If you're OK with replacing that bulkhead, then go for it.

Not sure how difficult it will be on that boat, but consider that the bulkhead is plywood. When it gets wet enough, it delaminates. The water intrusion will have let water work it's way down in between the plys making the problem much greater than what you see on the outside. When you tighten the rig, or load it hard, the bolts will start to work the rotten wood.

Proceed with extreme caution.
