forward bridgedeck bulkhead

Here's the core for the forward bridgedeck bulkhead. Notice the 3/4 in. white oak compression member. As shown, this bulkhead incorporates a compression member that helps absorb the loads that will be directed downward into the ship structure from the mast base. This evening, I'll vac bag a total of 6 layers of glass on each side to form the part. When It comes time to install this member, additional layers of unidirectional glass, tape and bedding strips will used.
