Who invented

Not Benjamin Franklin:

As early as 1784, Franklin suggested following the Chinese model of dividing ships' holds into watertight compartments so that if a leak occurred in one compartment, the water would not spread throughout the hold and sink the ship.

The scope of this article is really confusing, as it seems to focus on ship bulkheads, but is couched as "Bulkhead (partition)". I suggest renaming to make this clearer. How about "Bulkhead (structure)", or else "Bulkhead (ship)", and punt other uses to separate pages, such as "Bulkhead (aircraft)", for example. Either way, some work probably needs to be done to the disambiguation page for Bulkhead. (talk) 20:02, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

There needs to be a disambiguation to differentiate "Ship's Bulkhead" from "Basement Bulkhead", a possibly equally common term which needs a different entry. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:19, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Not just on ships

Perhaps it should be mentioned that "bulkhead" is also used to refer to just walls in a building on shore, on Navy bases, especially at naval training facilities. Same goes for "deck". --Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:53, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Wrong Section

This statement, while an interesting historical note, did not belong in the etymology section. I have removed it, but I feel that it would be nice to have it somewhere else within the entry.

The Song Dynasty Chinese author Zhu Yu wrote of Chinese ships with watertight bulkhead compartments in his book Pingzhou Table Talks of 1119 AD. A Chinese trade ship dated to 1277 AD was found off the southern coast of China in 1973, and had 12 bulkhead compartment rooms in its hull.

Cable discussion seems extraneous

The paragraph discussing EMP includes statment about cabling which doesnt belong here
