Examples of tabbing new bulkheads

I've been following this couples website for some time, and have been looking forward to Alex (who appears to be a boat-wright) finally discuss his process of rehabbing their new boat. Today's post talks about stiffening the hull.

I really like how he took some foam, cut to size, and then fiber glassed it. Innovative, and so practical.

If your attitude resembles the south end of a bull heading north, it's time to turn around.

Re: Examples of tabbing new bulkheads

Thanks for sharing this, avb3.

A quibble about terminology. The part shown in Alex's photos is a stiffener, not a stringer. To those of us who design these structures, there's a big difference- stringers are deep, continuous, large-moment-of-inertia longitudinal members; the "top hat" stiffener shown there is a small member that controls deflection in one panel without sharing in the global longitudinal loads.
