    Default tx-19 bulkhead

    so after asking a few people's opinions and how others had their bulkhead's glassed in their wingers, i have come to the conclusion that it seems to be most people only glass the sides and part of the bottom in, but not the top at all. what do all y'all think? and how were they done originally?

    I'm not real sure, I had sum wood rott and replaced everything but It added alot of strength and stability to it.. Not real sure why Big A done it that way, never knew any different so I never thought anything about it. But I can tell you the boat is alot more stable now and doesn't flex like it used to

    Tiger is at Deer camp and Gear head is at the world Finals.

    i have seen them glassed all the way around and just the sides and bottom.

    like TN said the Tx-19s have a lot of flex b/c of the wideness of the hull.

    i would tab it all the way but maybe thats just me.

    ya that makes the most sense but a lot of people seem to have theres done with the top open. i'm just trying to figure out the reasoning behind it and how the came originally. ya know..
