Saw your response to my question about foam bulkheads. I would be interested in your technique to install but couldn't access your e-mail. I have a new idea though. What about making a flat panel of strips and cutting it smaller than needed. Then cut foam to fit around the edges of said panel. The panel inset in foam could then fit nto the boat. This would allow for nice looking wood and also allow for easy fit into the boat while also allowing some flexibility in the hull if there was an impact of any signifigance. I mention this because some have commented on the rigidity of wood bulk heads. What do you think?
