New Dimensions ... the geometry seems different to me? both follow the windo frame the same, but go up at different angles?

OK, so got w/ the welder yesterday, and he quoted me approx? 250 bucks to repair the crack. He wanted to weld a plate over the damage, and promised me it would look like crap and may or may not last ;( He was trying to talk me into building a new one for 900 bucks. He also said he would Tig weld it, not Mig, so I was scared like a little girl and ran. Still searching for the part, and my father-in-law is going to see another welder Monday.

update: My father-in-law got w/ a local welder he's fond of, and here's the finished product. I also spoke to Matt at Xtreme, who can supply a replacement part for $330 bucks, with an 8 day lead time, and 40$ for shipping. I thought that was pretty reasonable. This weld was 20 bucks. I was pretty happy w/ it. Whatta ya think? No idea what kind of welder he used but Dad-in-law said the machine (<--technical term) was huge. Guy mentioned he did not want to connect the welds as he thought it might too much heat for very little benefit

Props to Mike @ 'MC of Charlotte' for rummaging thru his scrap piles trying to hook me up.

Thanks all, appreciate the input.....

Looks good Mitch! Did they do any testing in the weld & weld area to verify there are no stress cracks from excessive heat or weld imperfecations?

Nope, but he guessed excessive heat was the culprit. He looked it over and said the other welds looked fine. thx

The repair looks good ... I'd probably get the replacement part anyway as the shipping and price seem reasonable, and if you ever go to sell the boat someone might have some concerns ... glad to know we can get replacent parts from the manf. if we need to

BTW the 20 dollar tower weld repair held up great this season. Still looks perfect
