I'm trying to remove the bulkhead out of my (2016 Model if that matters) Director. What am I missing? I also didn't realize how thick it is, like 6". Just figuring out what gear can go where on its first self support trip.
If you look at the plastic central pillar supporting the foam bulkhead (with the bungee) you will see a plastic through bolt with flush sides. This through bolt actually unscrews. Once you unscrew this bolt you can lift up the plastic support and remove the central pillar and bulkhead.
Just a 3 day trip this go around. I usually get on 3-4 self support trips a year for up to a week each one. I prefer to store some things up front if I have room, help level the boat out. The Zets bulkhead is so thick and I'm 6'-5" so the bulk head is all the way forward. I doubt I can get anything up there but willing to give it the old college try.
