I think paperbacks would be a better way for you to go, Alex. Keep the good hard-covers for use on land. I've had the full Red Fox paperback set for years, along with my Jonathan Cape series hard-covers. The downside of paperbacks is that the illustrations are pretty small and smudgy.
My Red Foxes are 7" x 4 1/4", and the thickest is probably 'Swallowdale' at 1 1/2". BookFinder indicates that AbeBooks has used copies of 'S&A' for $US1 plus postage, and if all the titles are available that way you could get the whole set for a pretty modest outlay.
Moreover, if you want decoration for a bulkhead, you might consider one of my maps, laminated, to go with them. :-)
