Re: Replacement bulkheads....NOT.......




Bob
Good point and a more in line with the price I was thinking.

However, Boys

Do check the bolts, chain plate bolts are obvious but there is another row
at the bottom of the bulkhead. Mine required at least one full turn with my
fingers before I put the wrench to them. The way I figure it 9 bolts 1/4
inch. That has got to be structural and loose ain't good.
Anyways time to launch, bye for now
Mike
