I'm wondering now, :{

I can't believe I missed this crack. I still think I have an excellent project... the excellent value equation has disappeared though. I will look into getting it welded if I can't get a reasonable replacement then look for a new rack further down the road.

Mike I'd love to get a free replacement, but I bought this used, it's ten years old, been around salt water and doesn't seem worth the stress of convincing whoever made the tower to replace it. I'm hoping that the replacement part is not too expensive, otherwise I'll be resourceful and find an alternative.

Comparing the original posters crack and mine definitely indicate an issue with the inadequate welding, or the design in which all the stresses are transfered to create that distortion in the metal around the crack.
