I have detected significant dry rot in the forward starboard bulkhead some
four to five inches below the chain plate for the forward lower shroud.
This only became apparent when I removed the shelves from the wet locker
when refinishing the interior of Ginseng. This dry rot has not yet
migrated completely through to the vee-berth side of the bulkhead yet
covers an area of approximately 9X5 inchs along and under the cleat
supporting a shelf.

I'm certain that I'm not the first to be faced with this issue and would
seek counsel on whether to repair the panel or replace the bulkhead
entirely. If it requires replacing, any tips on removing the bulkhead in
as few pieces as possible to make a pattern would be welcomed.
