I have a 1991 Gulfstream and need to replace bulkheads on both starboard/port sides as the bottom areas are both in bad shape...
Probably covered on here before but how much strength do these bulkheads ad to the overall structure
of the hull??

These bulkheads/walls are between the cabin and the front seats....

The panel on the port side and the small panel under the helm on the starboard side provide no structural support. The screws holding them in place are something like a no. 8 trim screw. The center panel, however, is structural as demonstrated by the larger (and numerous) bolts.

You posted this in the Gulfstream regional section - which is for those that are somewhere near the gulfstream, I guess. It is not a Gulfstream model forum. Confusing? you bet.

Sorry about that, you are exactly right...
I stand corrected
