So the bulkhead (wood divider under the bow. It was attached to the stringers and to bow completely sealing the bow off)in this southwind I picked up is rotted. But it looks to be added at some point. Half assed actually. Boat was used as a drag only boat but I’m gonna make it a river boat. Obviously a fast one but river boat nonetheless. Is the bulkhead necessary in a southwind? None of my other jets had one. It would be cool to not have it so I could store stuff under the bow.

Maybe send a PM to Tim. He has a good running SWTD and knows quite a bit about them.
