Stronger in the long run.
I'm not sure why they glass some in (bilge ones), and only glue others. The glue used isn't flexible, so there dosn't seem to be a reason to me, other than cost maybe ?
I wouldn't recommending glassing in bulkheads that were originally glassed in. They have been designed this way, its not a cost issue. You will create stress points if you glass them in which can cause future issues and damage.
Try this! When your out sailing in 2m swells sit on the floor, in the port hull
and rest your body between the side walls. You will feel the flexible movement of your catamaran
. You don't want to restrict this design movement.
Replace flexible glue with the same.
