Bigd14,Yeah its a problem when all the stuff is mounted on that bulkhead. Mine had the fuel filters, fuel pump, and a bunch of wiring and hoses on it. These all were relocated straight down below the wood panel. I put my battery charger on the little angled aft facing wall just behind the storage cubbies to the starboard of the nav desk. I suppose one could leave the aft end of the bulkhead in place for mounting items and only cut out the front half.
Frank do you have pictures of the rest of the compartment back there? I am always interested in how other's boats are sorted out.
The boat is still a mess as I have the heat exchanger, water heater, locker floor and fuel tank removed, so the salon and quarterberth are filled with all the stuff that normally goes in the locker. When it's all back together I can take some pics. What areas are you wanting to see?
