My old diving board (10' Continental, made in Baldwin Park, CA) needs a replacement part. The mounting strip (2"W x 15"L x 3/16" thick) is badly rusted (see pics) and needs replacement. I've had no luck finding the exact part online and wondered whether I need the full strip or just a 2-bolt replacement mounting kit like this: http://www.discountpoolmart.com/product ... vrk56qrkp6
I can go to the trouble of making a stainless steel replacement strip but, if a pair of bolts (without the strip) are structurally adequate, it would save me some time.
So, simple 2-bolt replacement kit or fabricate a duplicate stainless strip, what's your opinion?
