Bombay Clipper 31

We are looking at a 79 Bombay clipper 31. There is a bulkhead forward of the battery compartment under the floorboard that is rotted. Any idea what is behind this bulkhead?

Re: Bombay Clipper 31

Going forward? If I remeber correctly just empty space, above the keel below the salon floor. Looks like an easy repair.
No tankage there, water tank is forward and fuel is aft. Id be curious where the leak came from. Ours was a 79, had all oe deck hardware and portlights never resealed, and zero leaks. Our water tank did get a bunch of pin hole leaks and needed replacing.
