I was referring to another fix reguarding welding the tube to dowels sorry
I ran into this and didn't have the time to make the parts up,I had a fab shop make the piece up, it was $15 and a phone call
I cut out the rotten section to match height of new bow tubing,inserted the dowels into both holes and epoxy both insertion points.
It's a nice work around since you can never get the old stanchions out,which leaves the other problem of dealing with the old anchor points
