The date is purely incidental I would not joke about something this serious.The facts are just as I wrote them.Secondly my friend has been in the business of metal working and welding for over 30 years he has worked with plenty of SS i varying grades and hardnesses.He felt so strongly about this metal failure that he called me immediately to warn me about my headstay and backstay which were not replaced.They will be replaced within the month.You can take this info for what it is worth,I simply felt that I had to inform others with similar boats about what I felt was important info.
