Watertight bulkheads ….

March 30, 2020

During the past month the shipwrights have started making the bulkheads watertight. This has involved fabricating timber to tightly fit between the bulkhead edge and the adjacent frame. This timber piece is such a tight fit in the cavity that it is hydraulically pushed into place. The ceiling planks also need a “flange” to be attached to.  Some of the iron hanging knees are also close to the bulkheads.
