But it was cheap!

Did you consider coating the whole insides with epoxy or barrier coat? At least that would have eliminated the porosity and prevented rotting from inside out.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
