Storage compartments

Has anyone cut storage compartments into their rear bulkhead, I have a 1997 Hewes Bayfisher 18’. It doesn’t have the compartments that you sit on while driving-just a solid deck. I’m looking to cut one or two in the vertical bulkhead . I know I would have to dig out some foam but I don’t think there is nothing else in that location. This boat has limited storage and I’d like to make one or both water tight 

any help would be great- I’ll try to get some pictures tomorrow of the exact area on my boat.

Dale, before you start cutting, take those rod holders out, drop a light in there and take some measurements. If you have a bore scope, it really comes in handy for projects like this. After you cut the holes, you might want to glue some treated wood around the perimeter of the cut-out, on the inside,  just to have more bite for screws.
