Cracked deck repair - part II

Recommended Posts

Well I said I had another 36" Broadmoor deck to redo. This one is off the 728. I thought this one was only cracked but ended up just about as bad as the 738's I just did (see "deck on crack"). I got a little carried away with the welder because there was extra holes drilled in the deck and as I was welding the cracks and the extra holes shut I decided to weld away and drill completely new holes in the deck so now I have no holes.

Do you suppose it's because that's the stiffest part of the deck because it's surounded by three sides. What I need now is a tank big enough to dunk this for electrolysis.
