I'll take them and send them as soon as I get home. The local mast guy is supposed to step them for me sometime this week, weather permitting. I wish I could get before and after pics, but that seems unlikely. I am curious about what the liner is doing during all of this. It is relatively flexible, and may show some movement as well. I wish that particular bulkhead, or any of them, were tied across the top. Now you have me really curious.

Interestingly, I have noticed a small stress fracture running port/starboard in the headliner. It is a hairline fracture about 1' long and has not progressed in a couple of years. The fracture, (incidentally?), is exactly between the head and the stand up locker, where the bulkhead slipped.

Actually a literal "interest" (i.e.partnership). He's definitly moving to Ft. Lauderdale, if all goes according to his plan, and I get left in South Texas; boatless. Maybe I can talk him out of the Catalina 22....
