how are these tabbed to the hull? I see they are only bolted at the bottom how are they on top?

we just made new bulkheads on my islander 36...all of them...this looks like a walk in the park!

So the wood panels seen here left and right need some TLC. Are they like bulkheads or can i remove them safely one at a time and replace with fresh wood, as they are a little crumby at the bottom? Keep in mind i'm not talking about the pole in the middle which i'm guessing is a big supporter of the mast and luckily in good shape.
take them out...on a new sheet of ply outline design...cut, seal with epoxy especially the end grains that look up at the deck where the chainplate enters and the bottom where water would pool

you can also stain them at this time.

tab if needed, paint glass tabbing, then varnish bulkheads after fitting...

when drilling chain plate holes make sure you pot them once or twice with epoxy, redrill and install plate...preferrably with new bolts

thats what I would do...

ah the pleasures of small boat projects....:D

cheers
