Bulkhead Separation

Looking for insight from you all: on my boat the wooden bulkhead has separated from the deck, primarily on the starboard side. I'm talking like almost two inches. Anyone else experienced this?

Re: Bulkhead Separation

Are you observing this with the boat in the water or on the hard?

Both. It's on the hard now, but I noticed it prior to hauling out.

Any depression at the base of the mast on deck?  Use a straight edge to check. 

Or at the base of the mast support in the cabin?

I had that on my 27, especially with the mast stepped. Turned out the base of the mast support - at the keel - was shot. I had the whole area repaired to like new and the gap is now completely gone. Looks beautiful (but $$$). The surveyor called it 'like new'.

Thanks for the response. I'd be very interested in learning more about your repair to the mast support and bulkhead fit. No doubt capricious would be interested too. If you have time at some point to elaborate, I'd sure appreciate it.

Any idea on how they repaired it. I'm guessing ,jack up,cut the support till good material is present and fill with composite.
