forward bulkhead

In order to install the cabin top and foredeck, I needed to finish taping the forward bulkhead in place.  Unlike the mast, cabin and aft bulkheads that receive 10 layers of uni on either side, the inner bridge deck portion under the forward bulkhead receives two 8 inch wide lengths of uni directional glass with their ends lapping out onto the forward bulkhead. In this photo, you can also see the "optional" foam strip where the mast support web will be installed.  I chose to use these foam strips along all critical hull to bulkhead joints because they provide a wider base that helps distribute loads more uniformly.
