SANTANA 22 INTERIOR MODIFICATIO

I have a 1976 Santana 22 that I have been restoring. I repaired the hull blistering and gave her a fresh new barrier coat and ablative. Next I am turning my attention to the interior.

I cut out the rotten V birth to expose the bulk head and noticed some rot. I have seen some pictures of santanas that someone has cut down the bulk head to within a few inches of the chain plate. I would like to do this but I am concerned I would lose some strength in the boat. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I would like to go from the first image below to the second.

SANTANA 22 INTERIOR MODIFICATIO

Cutting back the bulkhead increases the span of the mast bridge, the thickened deck section under the mast. On my Cal20 there are 2 stainless posts and a really serious bridge 3-4" deep where the bulkhead would be.


A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground you would never try to refloat it.

Is this a modification from the original? If so, did you complete the changes?
