Re: SJ23 Bulkheads




i did that this summer.  the chain paltes had leaked for a few years before she came into my protection.  the plywood was delaminated at the top and bottom but it wasn't rotten so i reglued the ply's with polyester resin and capped off the top and bottom 1 1/2" with a nice coat of resin.  it was an easy job but the compression post did have to shift a few inches to the starboard at the bottom.  i also remember chiseling a small corner off the bottom starboard corner of the bulkhead to get it over the flange that ties the post to the cabin floor.  i took out both bulkheads, rebuilt them and replaced them in an afternoon at the dock so it's not a bad job.  -scott
