 Bent stanchions and delaminated decks

"A bent stanchion requires replacement or straightening. In this case, it was possible to have it straightened. Removing the stanchion required access to the backing plate, nuts, and lockwashers holding it. I had to remove an overhead panel below the sidedeck. Another approach would have been to cut a hole in the panel slightly larger than the stanchion base and patch it after the repair was finished. The structural repair to the deck area under the stanchion was much more involved."
