The plate is removed. The hull is not upside down any longer. The dry run is completed.

Below some pictures.

the damage done to the bulkhead.
Same damage different view. The dammage happend on an inconvienient place because this is part of the pereferi that the rotationg door should seal the entrance to my sleeping room, but the plan is to it up by a flat surface I will get a good enough fix. The deck will be on topp and give sufficient strenght.
This is the concave side of the plate, the side that will take the NM elastic epoxy. I have rughend it with the angle grinder and number 36 grit paper. Later I will wet sand it with epoxy. That way no oxygen will reach the freshly sanded bronze surface. Mora about that later.

To be continued…
