How necessary is it to tape bulkheads for setees, behind helm, benches and the like?

The primary bulkheads need to be glassed/taped to the hull:

  • Forward cuddy bulkhead (aft end of the anchor well)
  • Anchor well deck (bottom of anchor well)
  • Aft cuddy bullkhead (the bulkhead that divides the pilothouse from the cuddy)
  • Top of crash chamber
  • Crash chamber bulkhead
  • Bunk tops
  • Framing members (the 2x4-ish vertical pieces against the inside of the hull)
  • Transom
  • Shelves and sheer decks
  • Stem
  • Decks
  • All under-deck bulkheads

I think that's it ... the constructions manuals spell it out as you go.  Notice that accommodations, furniture, battery boxes etc are NOT listed above because they are NOT structural.  Notice that some of the above is not as critical and the boat can do fine without them, e.g. anchor well.
